With computing power ever on the increase, heat issues can affect laptop computers just as much as conventional desktop machines. Because such high-power components are squeezed inside such a small case, it is inevitable that the heat has to escape somewhere, and invariably manufacturers resort to small, high speed fans to keep their components cool.


  • Increases cooling of both PC and Apple laptops
  • Reduces noise because internal laptop fans run slower
  • Improves reliability of the laptop because it runs cooler
  • Offers better ergonomic positioning of the laptop thereby reducing fatigue
  • Powered by USB, so no need for extra wires from a separate power adapter.

Even then, safe cooling is not always assured - especially if the machine is used on soft surfaces such as carpets, duvets or trouser-legs! Anyone who has ever used a laptop, literally “on their lap”, will know just how hot these computers can get. Even the big boys can get their designs wrong. Apple and Dell recently recalled nearly six million laptop batteries because of potential overheating and fire risk, at an estimated cost of over £100 million!

As the world-respected leaders in desktop cooling solutions, Zalman have launched their first product aimed specifically at laptop users - the ZM-NC1000 ultra-quiet notebook cooler. We think every laptop user should have one! It gives peace of mind that your laptop will not overheat and crash (or worse). It improves long-term reliability because the laptop is running cooler. In most cases, it cuts down on the noise from your laptop fans, because they don’t need to run as fast to maintain a safe temperature. Last but not least, it raises the rear of your laptop, making it much easier to type on its keyboard without worrying about wrist-strain.

The ZM-NC1000 comes with two centrifugal fans which give excellent airflow to the base of your laptop, with minimum noise. The speed of the fans can be adjusted according to how hot your machine is running and how quietly you would like the fans to run. The product comes in stylish black or silver finishes, and will accommodate the vast majority of laptops on the market.

Because the fans are powered by USB, there are no extra power supplies or wires to worry about, other than one cable (included) which connects the NC1000 to a USB port on your PC or Macintosh. You don’t lose a USB port because the ZM-NC1000 has one to replace the one being used on the machine (see picture). And at just over one kilogram, the Zalman notebook cooler can easily be transported with your notebook so you can use it anywhere - not just in your office!
