    Technically you can, but you'd need some massively beafy fans, a lighter frame, an Arduino, a blutooth shield and some serious programming skill...

    If they build it then I will buy it, I could also use it to strafe the cat, AMAZING!

    i have never bothered with these stands, but always stick a book/magazine on my lap then put my notebook ontop of that, helps stop roasted nuts and keeps the air flow to the fans.

    This is the one I've recommended to friends in the past. Large single fan with low RPM so quiet while shifting a ton of air and the size of it will likely be effective regardless of vent placement on the laptop chassis.

    It would have saved a lot of hassle if you had just said 'Why do you need to know what model it is? I am unsure of these things.' ;)

    Okay so this thread is dead and all, but I'd still like to add a couple of things in case someone finds this via search.

    The Enermax cooler is darn good. Lovely build quality, low price and it actually works.

    The other thing I wanted to say was that laptop coolers are like desktop PC cases. If you have a rubbish stock CPU cooler the chances are your temperatres will be high even in a top-end air cooling case. There's only so much that can be done. If you have a decent laptop, one of these will mean low-noise gaming for hours without overheating. If you have a rubbish laptop it's not going to make much of a different at all.
