When you buy a laptop/notebook or any other portable computer, you also have to buy many accessories to go with. As many laptops have vents at odd places, sometimes even at the bottom, it stands to reason that they get very hot. This affects their performance as well. And if you are working for long hours on your laptop, particularly in one place, you really ought to get a laptop stand with built in cooling fans to dissipate the heat. The bamboo laptop stand is eco-friendly as it is made of bamboo which is a sustainable and renewable resource.
Among the bamboo laptop stands are Macally’s Ecofanpro. It comes with two fans which are attached via USB to the laptop and which work to reduce the heat. It also has three adjustable heights, so you can change the height to one which is comfortable for you. It comes in a natural bamboo color so it gives you the warmth of wood as well as reducing the carbon footprint.
The Ecofanpro has mixed reviews. While most people love it, there are some who have had a bad experience with the quality of fans used. If you like bamboo, and your laptop fans work for sometime, great. Otherwise you can always replace the fans quite cheaply and easily.
