ThermalTake Tai-Chi M+ notebook cooler reviewThermalTake is pretty famous for its cooling products, cases, and power supplies. In this review I take a look at their new Tai-Chi M+ notebook cooler, this product is designed for widescreen notebooks and besides making them run less hot it should also improve ergonomics a bit. The cooler slightly raises the laptop , making it a bit easier to type and to view the LCD display of your system.
Besides this model for widescreen notebooks, ThermalTake also has the older Tai-Chi M cooler for non-widescreen laptops. The TaiChi M+ is 400mm wide while the Tai-Chi M is only 320mm wide. The Tai-Chi M+ is compatible with 12" to 17" widescreen notebooks. For small ultra-portable 12" notebooks it will probably be quite big but for 15.4" and 17" models it fits perfectly.
The product ships in this nice box. Besides the cooler you can also find a USB cable and a short manual inside the box.
Now lets take a look at the features and specifications:
|Dimension||400 x 330 x 35 mm|
|Fan Dimension||70 x 70 x 15 mm|
|Start Voltage||4.5 V|
|Power Input||0.60 W|
|Fan Speed||1000 R.P.M|

A closer look at the TaiChi M+
The Tai-Chi M+ has a nice-looking foldable design. The product is made out of aluminum, the first part is black and the second part is silver and has lots of rounded rectangular-shaped ventilation holes.
