The Notepal LapAir is a simple and elegant solution to a problem that has existed since the mass production of laptops. That is, finding a comfortable way to use a laptop away from a desk without it overheating or burning the user. A laptop cooler and a cushion have come together to create the perfect away from the office companion. It allows users to work on their laptop anywhere they can find a seat or lay down. The LapAir becomes an ergonomic surface for viewing and typing while resting on a users lap. Cooler Master understands that comfort is paramount in these situations and the Notepal LapAir is engineered to deliver.

The Cooler Master NotePal LapAir comes in a pretty large box with Cooler Master’s standard design. As usual, you’ll find plenty of pictures and details on the box.
Taking the LapAir out of the box we see it’s secured between two fitted styrofoam pads and wrapped in a plastic bag along with the manual.
The LapAir has a simple black surface, with rounded edges, and a large venting surface with a single 80mm, silent cooling fan. The vent comes off easily by pulling the “tab” seen on the right side, which is great for cleaning.
The bottom is nearly as simple as the upper surface, but you can see the built-in grooves for cable management, the sponge pad for your lap, and the built-in USB slot.

The LapAir is the most comfortable lap-based cooler I have used. The soft padding is very comfortable, and conforms well, adding an ergonomic factor, yet it’s not so squishy that the base is unstable. The single cooling fan is very quiet, and vents a cool air uniformly under the notebook, keeping the surface of the computer noticeable cooler. The built-in cable management is very neat, and the storage slot for the USB connector makes streamlining for travel a breeze.
The LapAir is a great idea and provides good cooling while using your laptop for general purpose activities.
