Review: Xpad for Laptops.

Ever hear of Xpad? I have! I actually got the chance to try out the Xpad and I love it! I use it every single time I'm on the computer.

I'm sure that most, if not all of you have had this problem: The bottom of your laptop gets really really hot. Well the Xpad resolves that problem!

I actually have a small Vaio Netbook,as you can imagine I do a lot of work on it, which in return over heats. I usually have my Laptop propped up on my legs, and I also usually end up burning them too.  If I don't burn my legs then I burn my pillow or sheets. No joke, sometimes I will actually start to smell my pillow burning after a while.

Another great aspect to the Xpad is that it is in no way electronic. It's simple really. All it does is lift your laptop up a little so the fans inside can work and cool it down. There is also an Xpad Slim, it is slightly thinner and can hold a laptop up to 17' while the regular Xpad can hold up to 15'.

When your laptop overheats it is really bad for your laptop. Actually when your laptop overheats it can freeze, randomly shut off, and worse.. Not turn back on. It's important to keep your laptop cool, and $24.95 is actually a very reasonable price. Especially when you consider... Hmm.. $25 now, or $300+ Later?

I love that the Xpad has rubber on the 4 lifts because if I were to resituate I wouldn't have to worry about my computer slipping off, with the rubber pads I can tilt my laptop and it won't even budge.

If you are a blogger or you have a laptop and your on it alot I would really consider getting an Xpad, in the long run it is worth it trust me.

Ohh! And this reminds me. 2 years  ago I had an Acer laptop and it was always overheating, and unfotunatley that laptop does not work anymore. And I can honestly say that I believe it stopped working from the overheating.

Oh and 1 last thing! If you go to the Xpad website and decide you would like one, you may want to consider this promotion they have going on: When you buy 2 or more Xpad's you get an additional 20% off! Just use the code: (XPAD4LAPTOP)

-A BIG BIG Thank you to the wonderful people at the Xpad website for providing me with an Xpad, It is wonderful and I use it everyday!

  7. Am so glad for this post AManda!!!
    I have an accer netbook too ,thats always extra hot and i always found that not ok...
    I always thought dat something wasnt rite that it over heats and
    nobody can fix my prob where it gets stuck all the time :-(

    But honestly the times it gets stuck , is when i have barely worked on
    the laptop and it aint even hot:-)

    But this particular model of Accer, i have been told, has been stopped coz its a bad model and horrid with software support too, honeslty i'll never buy an accer again!!

    I love netbooks though coz theu are so flexible and cute and u can carry them around too!!!

  8. I have an award for you.
