Overall and Final Verdict
At the end of the day I think that the Cooler Master Notepal Ergostand is a solid well rounded device. The small adjustments they made to the design over the first Ergostand such as the foldable feet to hold the laptop up, the extra size support, and the LED that lets you know when the device is plugged in, make for great improvements to the overall functionality of the device. The nine degree change in temperature over the course of testing was incredible, especially when you consider that it was a 12% change. It wasn’t just the measurable changes that excited us either, the change in surface temperature upon touching the base of the laptop bodes only good things for the rest of the device. The Ergostand II is priced at $39.99, which is competitive, but a bit on the high side. With that said, I do think that you are getting exactly what you pay for with this device. It is solid and well-rounded and will go a long way in making sure that things stay cool.
