Closer Look: DeepCool Cooling Pad

When you remove the DeepCool M3 Cooling Pad from the box you are struck by just how lightweight the cooling pad is. Being mainly constructed of plastic it feels light, but seems quite sturdily built. The grill across the top accentuates the 2.1 speakers and provides protection and a splash of color to the design. In the lower 1/4 of the image you can see the silicone panel inserted on the front of the unit which also adds panache and, on a bit more practical noted, prevents the laptop from sliding off.

From the side you can see the relatively slim profile of the DeepCool M3 cooling pad. Also prominent is the speaker grill that wraps around both sides. I type a lot on my laptop and the 8 degree platform angle increases the comfort of lengthy typing sessions.

The interconnections on the laptop cooler are grouped together on the left hand side of the unit. The power port supports a mini-USB cable, which is handy because the DeepCool M3 Cooling Pad can be powered from the laptop, using a standard cable, or from a standard charger that is used to charge many current mobile accessories. There are two standard sized USB outlets also on the left hand side to allow you to plug in peripherals through the cooling pad when it is connected to the cooling pad from your laptop.

These ports did not work on the demonstration unit provided, but that is probably a defect on this unit. You can also see the rotary speed control for the cooling pad fan on the right hand side of the picture. This allows you to control the fan speed, or shut it off. I found the fan so quiet that I just left them running at full speed at all times.

DeepCool has a N9 Aluminum laptop cooler that supports up to 17", I would think that it would hold the 17.3" model too.

You are correct. Laptop cooling pads provide a surface for laptops to rest on so air will circulate through the laptop when the cooling pad is placed on a soft surface such as a blanket. They also allow your hands a more natural approach because the laptop does not sink into the soft surface either.
