Your link is broken...I personally don't use any, but my mom has used 5 of the Antecs for various laptops around the house and office and they have been working great for around 3 years or so.

Something like a laptop cooler really comes down to personal preference. It's not like we can tell you which is going to work the best with your notebook, in your unique situation. That being said, my preference is for laptop coolers that are passive, and not powered by USB. The fans add unnecessary noise, and drain battery life if not running on AC. There's also the cord to mess with, and it occupies a USB slot.

Both of htese are passive coolers:

Also, the Antec that I mentioned has USB pass through, so you don't lose the port. It just pulls power from it and you can still attach stuff to the port.

Hi

you could go to any Target or Walmart store and find one like this...

here is a link to Target website where you can get it, but its just as easy to go to the stores and pick one out. Target site

Like already stated above its very hard for us to tell you what cooler will work best for your needs.

good luck :)

I don't think they make laptop coolers that plug into the wall, if that's what you mean. This is one that is very similar to what I use HERE

It says it has 2 usb ports on the cooler, so you can hook your other devices to those, and use one of your usb ports on your laptop for the cooler. I don't know if the fans are silent on this one. The one I use actually has one giant fan that was advertised as being silent, and actually is silent. Apparently, they don't carry that one anymore, and I don't know the name brand, sorry.

Hope that helps.
