Usually when I get to this point of the notebook cooler reviews I have to really talk up the features of a unit to make up for somewhat lackluster cooling performance. This time it really isn't the case. I find that not only does the U Stand offer really good cooling, it also has a ton of features that should take this cooler right to the top of your list. Plenty of additional USB ports, a movable top to adjust the angle to whatever suits your needs the best, the sleek looking aluminum top and adjustable fan positioning makes the U Stand something worthy of your attention.
I like the ability to change the angle in which I work with my Lenovo. Even though I don't add another keyboard, I found that even using the first level up from the flattest orientation makes my day to day typing easier and puts the screen at a much better level for my desk arrangement. Something else I liked is that Cooler Master seems to have hit on something else. It seems the more you increase the angle of operation of this Lenovo, the cooling continues to improve. For those who can't keep their hands on the laptop due to heat, this is a solution that should solve not only resting your palms in the heat, but the U Stand should lower the temperatures to a more acceptable level as well.
Remembering back to the Infinite EVO laptop cooler, it didn't seem to offer much in the way of style, cooling, nor did the connectivity impress me, and that was priced just less than $30. That being said, I find the guesstimated $36.99 price tag sourced via TheNerds.net to be downright reasonable, dare it I even say cheap! I have seen quite a few takes at how to cool and make using a laptop a more ergonomically pleasant experience, but most fail on one or the other.
Finally, Cooler Master has delivered me a cooling solution that I can brag about and recommend. The NotePal U Stand has met and superseded all of my needs; I guess the question is, apart from the lack of availabilty just at this time, why don't you have one meeting your needs?
