Old cooler had no clearance, air blew wrong direction so hot air was redirected back into laptop. Tis unit lifts laptop high enough so plants of cooler air can get in, and fan blows the right direction so cool air is directed to intake on laptop. Seemed a little flimsy, but surprisingly strong and holds my heavy laptop fine. Bought two, one for me, one for my wife, and it works equally well for hers. Crazy low price, but great product! I'd buy another in a heartbeat!
