La Tosta Laptop Cooling Stand: Proof That Cheap Yet Useful Things Still Exist
February 16th, 2009
Laptop owning cheapskates rejoice! Like all other laptop owners, I know that you’re concerned about the heat that your laptop generates, as well as the stress on your back from countless hours of being hunched down while using your laptop. If you’ve been holding off on purchasing those usb powered, ergonomic cooling pads, hold off no more. La Tosta is here to save the day.
The La Tosta is elegant in its simplicity: they’re just a pair of curved steel bars that prop up your laptop, allowing the good blue arrow cool air to move in underneath your laptop and forcing the bad red arrow hot airs to leave.
As you can see the La Tosta (ancient Spanish phrase meaning “Cheap Portable Laptop Stand”) comes with caps that grip the surface of your desk and your laptop. This also ensures that neither your glass dinner table or your brand new Macbook Pro will get scratched.
By propping up your computer you’re not forced to slouch anymore, so La Tosta helps your posture as well. The guy in the picture doesn’t seem impressed however. Probably because he’s worried that some of his ports are being blocked by La Tosta, which is not really a problem because you can easily adjust the bars depending on your needs. But let’s not mind the party pooper: you’ve yet to hear the best thing about this product, which is that it’s a steal at $10 USD. The price is originally $13, but Starlight Creations are slashing off $3 off La Tosta’s price until March 1. So take a deep breath, relax, take out your wallet, pull out a Hamilton and head on to Starlight Creations’ shop.
