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.

Sexy curves?

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).
