First Look

The NotePal P1 arrives in a colorful retail package, complete with carry handle and product window.

On the back are several close-ups of the NotePal features as well as pictures of it in use showing the correct placement and benefits of its ergonomic design.

The box contents are held tightly in place by a molded plastic tray.

The contents consist of the NotePal cooler itself, USB cord and rubber stand. There are no directions included, unless you count the outside rear of the package.

The under side of the NotePal is pretty basic, anti-skid rubber feet, a few vents for air intake and a small compartment to stow the USB cable in when not in use. But what's this yellow sticker?

Looks like more anti-trashcan propaganda. I first saw this sticker used on the Blue Ice Pro. I still don't quite get what the purpose is, I think it has to do with that whole recycling electronics thing, but at least on the NotePal it's in a much less obtrusive location.

Two 70mm fans make up the main air-moving power of the cooler. There's some nice grills on top with clear plastic trim rings that I first thought might light up or something. The USB ports and power button are integrated into the side.

There's no real clear indication of how the stand is to be used but I assume it's for holding the NotePal in a space-saving vertical orientation on your desk when not in use. The stand doesn't fit exactly right with the cooler laid flat and it blocks most of the intake vents along the back edge.

Well, let's fire this thing up.
