I know many people that use their laptop as their main work machine. Laptops are not really made for comfort and if you are using yours constantly you probably bend your neck down to see the screen correctly. This can cause a lot of discomfort, which does not make for the most comfortable working experience. Another thing about laptops is many of them really have inadequate cooling. Cooler Master has released another product in their ever-popular Notepal line of laptop coolers that solves both of these problems. The product is the Notepal U Stand and we have the review.
It is not often that I look at a laptop and say wow that looks beautiful and then pick it up and fall in love with it even more. I think the only time that has really happened was with a Macbook Air, but I’m not even a Mac user. Lenovo is not a company you really think of when it comes to beautifully designed laptops, they make great laptops no doubt, but most of them are not that eye catching. Today we are going to be taking a look at the Lenovo IdeaPad U260 12.5-inch laptop, which is one of sleekest laptops I’ve ever seen and comes packed with an Intel Core i5 processor and 4GB of memory. Is the U260 all looks or will it really perform?
Laptop stands are always a good thing to have around. They making typing and using your laptop much easier but more importantly they place your laptop at an ergonomically-correct angle. I have quite a few laptop stands actually, but the thing that bothers me is that they take up so much space when you are traveling. Today we have a notebook stand that is extremely portable; it folds up for easy storage and traveling! It has quite a large price tag, let’s see if it’s worth it!
