Anyone who's ever operated a laptop computer, well... on their lap, for any extended period of time knows that after a while the bottom of that shiny new notebook starts to get uncomfortably warm. Despite all the latest cooling advancements like copper heatpipe sinks, blower fans and processors that use less voltage and automatically reduce speed, the fact still remains you're cramming a whole bunch of heat-generating components into the smallest space possible... things are bound to get a little warm.

My Compaq Presario 900 notebook is no exception to the rule. I recently replaced the 1600+ Thoroughbred core with a 2400+ Barton and swapped the old 40gb 4200rpm hard drive for a much faster 80gb 7200rpm one. Of course, faster components usually means more heat, and judging by the last laptop cooler I tested out, there's not a whole lot that can be done to cool it down.

Laptop coolers of various forms have been around for years, from special insulating pads to stands to things with fins and fans, but for every different type you see there are a myriad of mixed reviews over whether they're actually very effective or not. As I mentioned, in my experience their performance has been less than stellar. But today I have for review the latest from Titan/Inland in their G3T aluminum cooler.

Think the G3T can keep things cool? Let's find out!
