Traveling by airplane can be great for getting to your destination quicker than by car. I enjoy almost every aspect of air travel except for one - cramped seating space. I always feel like a sardine that has been crammed into a metal tin. It's tolerable when all I want to do is play a [...]

opt-magicq-laptop-case-1

I recently traded in my 13" MacBook Pro for an 11" MacBook Air.  I love my new Air, but I did have to give up using the ChillBed stand (see related posts) I've been using with the MBP because the front lip of the laptop stand was too high for the very thin front edge [...]

macbook-air-case-and-stand

I've seen some intriguing cases for the MacBook Air recently that convert into stands or risers to elevate the laptop and allow air flow under it.  The one I like the best was the Opt MagicQ case, but they don't have a US distributor and I couldn't find them on Amazon or eBay.  I began [...]

I recently reviewed a laptop cooling stand, and Herb Ostroff, the CEO of Ergo-Tilt, contacted Julie to ask if we’d put his Ergo-Tilt laptop stand through the same tests.  We agreed, and Herb quickly shipped out a couple of stands to me.  The Ergo-Tilt stands are designed to keep your back, neck, and wrists relaxed [...]

One of the problems with laptops is their tendency to overheat, which can damage internal components.  Their small size doesn’t allow a lot of venting nor big cooling fans to keep down heat.  And their portability often means that people are using them places that can block the cooling vents – like on laps or [...]

Laptops are becoming ever so popular these days that most people use them as desktop replacements.  They are extremely convenient because of their portable size and having everything built-in (keyboard, mouse, and monitor).  But there are sacrifices for this increase in convenience.  You lose the comfort of having a raised monitor, there’s increase in heat [...]
