Latest consumer research commissioned by Targus reveals a dramatic shift in the way consumers are using their laptops. The traditional office desk has been superseded by the flexibility and freedom of working in multiple rooms as well as on the lap. In fact, Targus research shows that people are using laptops on their laps more than a third of the time.
The popularity of laptops and their varying usage at work and home has highlighted the importance of introducing cooling devices to everyday laptop
use. When users are working from their laps, the coffee table or on the bed, their laptop’s internal air vents are not able to function optimally, resulting in the faster wear and tear on internal components.
The easiest way to keeping laptop heat levels under control is to use a cooling device that elevates the laptop and increases airflow under the machine. This not only extends the laptop’s lifespan, but encourages faster performance, results in fewer crashes and provides heat protection for all work surfaces – be it your dining room table, coffee table or legs.
Targus, a leader in mobile computing accessories, has developed a dedicated Cooling Product Line that offers cooling solutions that cater to all types of users – including heavy notebook users, mobile professionals and those who work from home. All products have dual fans and are USB operated, so there’s no need to carry around additional power adaptors.
The newest addition to Targus’ range is the Netbook Chill Mat which caters to the ever expanding number of netbook users. Meanwhile, Targus’ Notebook Cooling Chill Mat is suitable for most laptops and provides cool air to ventilate laps and workspaces. Targus also offers a Chill Mat for Mac, which is especially designed to fit Macbooksâ up to 17-inches in size and features an ergonomic tilt angle design.
The Targus Australia Cooling Product Line is stocked at most major retailers nationwide, including Harvey Norman, JB Hi-Fi, Dick Smith and Officeworks.
