Summary: This unit is attractive, holds your laptop securely, and greatly cools it ! When your laptop idles it continues to run (so if you leave your laptop overnight in sleep mode would unplug this). A lifesaver to keep your system cool !! Glad I bought it !!
Summary: This mat is perfect for my 17 inch laptop. I like that the plug in can be moved to either side of the mat so that it can be plugged into either side of the laptop. The only problem that I had was that it did not fit into my laptop bag and it is hard to use on a solid surface like a table because it slips and slides all over the place. Could benefit from some type of rubber feet or something.
Excerpt: I had an old laptop fan, but after a period of time the wire was exposed and no longer works. Now I found what I thought was a higher end laptop fan. While playing the same game with the old fan, I now have half the frame rate I used to have AND paid MORE for the wonderful upgrade of an extra fan. If you have a pc that tends to overheat, than this is not going to help much at all. The power behind each fan is almost non-existent.
Summary: the targus chill mat worked great ... I travel frequently with my laptop. Only thing I didn't care for was ....it didn't fit in my computer case, well it fit, but I couldn't zip that portion of my case closed ..... so it would kind of hang out. I used it with my 17.3" lappy ...needless to say, I loved my cooling mat, I would just take the case with the mat protruding from the case ... I didn't too much care. I had another expensive brand computer ....
Summary: I'm using this mat with the HP Pavilion dv 7 with a 17.3 inch screen and I don't know why I waited so long to purchase this product. I can now run my pc for hours and it doesn't heat up. I strongly recommend anyone with a laptop to purchase a cooling mat and this is one of the best. Thanks HP customer service for recommending this. The shipping was fast and I know I am going to extend the life of my computer. Well worth the price.
Summary: I got this product for my new laptop, since overheating was one of the reasons my old laptop died on me. I find this product to be perfect for the job. The cord, which comes out of the back, can reach anywhere on the computer for a USB. You can even shift the cord under the mat and it will reach the front if you need to. The mat seems a little flimsy at first, if you push on the top, it will flex downward, but it holds the computer nicely.
