Adjustable Aluminum Laptop Riser Cooling Stand w/ Built-In 70mm Fan - Black
Keep your laptop cool with this Adjustable Aluminum Riser Cooling Stand from Monoprice!
This stand has an aluminum mounting surface, which combines with the two 70 mm cooling fans to help dissipate damaging heat away from your laptop or notebook computer. The stand can be adjusted to six different angles for optimum positioning of the screen when working at a desk.
The mounting surface measures 12 3/4" wide by 11 3/32" deep. A small lip with a rubber bumper at the front of the stand helps prevent the laptop from slipping off the mounting surface at the higher angles.
A built-in 4-port USB hub is positioned on the left side of the stand. The fans and hub are powered by USB power via the 23" USB A male to mini-B male cable that is included with the stand. A switch on the hub turns the fans on or off and a blue LED indicates when USB power is applied.

These stands aren't really big enough for these 17.3" notebooks but they do hold them.
I just wish the fans had longer lasting bearings.
One is a 2010 vintage HP Pavilion with the first generation of Core i7 mobile chips. This system runs too hot to touch when on the 120 Watt adapter but one the stand it stays at a reasonable temperature.
The other is an even older HP with a mobile Turion chip that also runs hot. Again, this keeps it cook enough to avoid problems.
PROS: Nice looking and good design mechanically.
CONS: These are on 24x7 and one fan is already noisy.
PROS: Perfect fit for a MacBook Air or similar.
Allows me to have my Time Machine underneath for convenience
The fan is nice when I need it, glad I can switch it off
CONS: The USB ports are very unreliable. I have tried a lot of cables in they all work loose after a while. This should not happen.
PROS: Fits a 13" MacBook perfectly and looks like it was made for it.
Bottom lip does not hurt your wrists whatsoever. Best design I've come across
USB hub is actually usable.
Can't beat the price.
CONS: Not the most ideal for a lap, but doable. It's better made for laptop that is meant to stay on a desk, which is what I purchased it for.
Fans can be a little on the noisy side, but silence was not expected
The detachable USB power cable is nice, but I would not have minded a more discrete non-detachable one.
PROS: This was a great purchase. The value is unbelievable but the function of this device is incredible.
PROS: Perfect to cool and put the monitor in the Mac Pro Book at a good hight to match with the larger monitor next to it in the studio. Adds extra USB ports too boot which is a real benifit since I have lots of USB and USB midi cables, disk drives, mouse, keyboard all hooked up at once.
CONS: Heck no, I cannot even complain about the price
PROS: SOLID construction, front lip keeps laptop from sliding, USB ports and a switch to turn fans on and off.
CONS: fans are a little loud, but if you play music at your desk, you will not hear them.
PROS: Well Made
Has 4 USB connections,
I was surprised to find this is also a USB hub (guess I didn't scrutinize the photos enough). That's ostensibly handy, but it's USB 2.0 (the older, slower version of USB) and not powered, which makes the hub almost useless nowadays.
PROS: Matches Macbook anodized-aluminum look.
Feels very sturdy.
Doubles as a decent USB 2.0 hub.
CONS: A little larger and heavier than other cooling stands.
PROS: 2 Fans, 4 USB Ports, Silent
CONS: Could have more USB Ports
PROS: 1. Light weight
2. Multiple USB ports
3. Dual fans prevent overheating
4. Sleek and stylish without the hefty price tag
CONS: 1. Not good for older/heavy laptops
2. Flimsy stand causes laptop to shake while typing
3. No reinforcements for stand
