They plug into your usb port (if you got a free one), have a bendable arm and the fan is cloth so you dont chcp off your finger.

It works really well for cooling off my laptop—I have a dell latitude and it gets really hot—i just position the fan to blow into/ on top of the pcmcia port and it works nice.

Only downside is an annoying “buzz” of the fan.

It probably works well to to use for actually fanning yourself, but i have an air conditioner for that.

Neat!  A little pricey for me though.  Hmm, and Fall is on the way, too.  :wink:

I have the light. My monitor has USB ports on the side so I plug it in there and it illuminates my kb perfectly.
