Microsoft notebook stand blows in
Fan-powered cooling base
Microsoft has launched a curvaceous notebook stand that’s as cool as it is comfortable.
Microsoft's Notebook Cooling Base
The Notebook Cooling Base has a fan integrated into its middle and an “efficient cooling channel”, which Microsoft claimed combine to prevent your machine from overheating.
The 29mm thick base is powered through a USB connection and would surely make the ideal companion for any MacBook Air – although we’re sure Microsoft would rather you didn’t pair its base with something from Apple.
It also has a contoured base, enabling it to provide a “comfortable typing angle” when rested on a desk or on your lap.
Microsoft’s Notebook Cooling Base will be available in black and white hues from July, priced at $30 (£21/€23).
