ThermaPAK - Review & Giveaway!

The folks over at ThermaPAK were kind enough to send me a (pink!) laptop cooler to try out and review. Also? They're sending one to a lucky winner too!
This is what ThermaPAK has to say:
"ThermaPAK, founded in 2004, has been a pioneering developer in laptop cooling solutions. Through comprehensive research and continual evolution on design, ThermaPAK has created a series of cooling products that use no power and require no refrigeration. ThermaPAK is based in Pasadena, CA and on the web at www.thermapak.com." (cite)
I have been using the 15" Pink HeatShift Laptop Cooler from ThermaPAK for about a week now, and here's what I think:

Good:
- Is compact, light and flexible.
- Does not require a power source (uses crystal heat shifting technology).
- Comes in PINK!
- Really works. I assumed it would just insulate my lap from the heat of the laptop, but this is NOT the case. When I lift the laptop and feel the pack it is always cool to the touch. I don't understand the technology, but I like it!

Bad:
- My only complaint is that the surface is a little bit on the slick side and makes me nervous that the laptop will slide off. I have been using the product for about a week now and have never actually had this happen, but it does make me wary.

OVERALL:
Very pleased with the product - I will continue to use this one!

  81. I find it interesting that that start off as crystals and then melt with the heat; then turn back to crystals so that you can reuse it again.

  159. I have 2 laptops. A new 15" that I use the most and a 17" that was resusitated.

    The 17" gave up the ghost last month so we bought a new one. after a few weeks of working on it we got it up and running again. It's nice that we can both be online at the same time if we want to.
