However, the Lapdesk N definitely does not dwarf the notebook ,apdesk appear out of place due to its increased size, and definitely complements the overall look very well.
It is virtually inaudible over the operational noise from the laptop. The speaker, cooler hybrid provides a good upgrade over the stock laptop audio by offering great sound quality.
Two additional grips are provided in 4 mounting locations depending on the notebook size to further secure the device. Rest assured, that I had a very difficult time trying to make my notebook slide off short of tilting it close to 90 degrees from horizontal.

Do not let the size fool you, this fan actually pushes a very respectable amount of air while remaining extremely quiet. Now comes to the key feature that sets the N apart from the rest of the herd.
However, I was proven wrong when I observed the difference in temperatures from the additional cooling offered by the N The cooling is supplied by a single variable speed 80mm fan placed in the middle, with large vented grilles on both sides to allow great air flow.
You’re awesome for doing it! The bottom is lined with a layer of extremely comfortable air-mesh polyester padded with polyurethane. Logitech states that these are rated to 2W of peak power each, which is quite standard in terms of portable standards.
Temperature readings were taken with CPUid Hwmonitor. Fortunately, Logitech has incorporated everything into one convenient USB cable, and it alone powers the fan and both speakers.
Even better, this cable can be neatly tucked away in the provided slots no matter where the USB port is located. My protocol for testing is always idle first for 10 minutes with no background applications running. Computer enthusiasts always use load temperature to test the cooling efficiency of their computers, and the test conducted here is no different.

The shape of the bottom is actually concave to the resting surface to facilitate better airflow, and to isolate your body from the heat when resting the N on your legs. A prime example of this effect is the Sennheiser PC headset, which had a solid cover over the drivers with minimal opening, which limited the driver movement and produced very shallow bass as a result. Lastly, I did notice some crackling sound during high bass intensity at a high volume.
The two neodymium speakers featured on the unit appear to be 50mm in diameter. However there is a distinct veil over the sound, which makes the sound feel somewhat artificial and distant, as well as causing the bass to be somewhat anaemic after hz.
In terms of design, the N Lapdesk is a handsome device that would not look out of place in any home environment. However that is the typical case when a notebook cooler is used in conjunction with portable speakers. The 80mm fan creates a negative pressure zone below the notebook and draws in the warm air to exhaust it in the spacious area below the cooler.
Now the last thing I want from sitting down to enjoy a movie is having to drag a knot of cables with me and having them tangle everywhere. Initially I had some doubts about the cooling effects of the N on the T61 since it is a side-exhaust model with no bottom intake.
It is the perfect product for someone who wants a convenient upgrade for better sound without the cluttering cables found on portable speakers, with the benefit of having a comfortable platform to rest the notebook on so they can focus lapdedk the entertainment without fearing for the safety lapdewk the notebook.
When I first unboxed lapdexk N and held it in my hands, I was immediately surprised with how solid the entire structure felt.

Not only do users usually lose 2 USB ports, they also have to deal with the resulting cable mess. Another kudos to Logitech for beautifully integrating the cooler with the notebook. The differences may seem minor, but the significance of the USB cooler is that it draws the hot exhaust away immediately instead of having it circulate, which leaves a distinctly cooler feeling notebook, as well as prolonging the lifespan of other components by redistributing the heat quickly.
