Review: Because your lap(top) deserves it

As you can see, LapAir is designed to comfortably sit on your knees and angle your laptop while it’s at it.

Thanks to clever design, airflow will not be blocked when you’re working on your knees or couch. The device uses an 8cm fan that’s placed center-top.

The fan has a mesh grill cover that can be taken off and cleaned.

LapAir is angled for two reasons – your posture while working and optimum air-circulation.

Bottom of the LapAir has soft mat surface and your knees will surely appreciate it.

However, soft matte is pretty slippery so Cooler Master put a thick rubber strip on the other side to stop LapAir from moving.

The fan is powered via USB cable, which is physically connected to the fan. The USB tip is a pass-through connector, meaning you still get to use the port for something else.

You can route the cable via channels (above) to where you have a free USB on your laptop.
