All I Want For Christmas Is A Computer Fan That Won’t Burn Out

There’s a computer store by my house that my husband is all too familiar with. You see, I keep burning out my computer fans. I use my laptop for about 10 hours a day and this poor thing can’t handle the pressure!

About once a month I either burn out or break my laptop fan. Bill goes back and one of the sales assistants usually yell “SHE DID IT AGAIN!?”

They can’t believe it. I’m like an enigma. We’ve tried a variety of brands — all the same. Bill went yesterday to get me YET ANOTHER FAN and this time he came back with three. He said they were having a 50% off sale and we might as well stock up.

I laughed.

But he made a good point. 🙂

I bought a MAC computer and tried to work on it but it lacks certain functions I need to batch edit photos etc. Maybe I just don’t know HOW to do it which is quite possible, but being on my laptop saves me OODLES of time when I write on my blogs. I literally could work with my eyes closed. I still fumble with the MAC. One day I’ll sit down and figure that puppy out.

  1. mac laptop. i write on it all day everyday. never a problem. photoediting also a breeze. just book a session (free) at your local apple store and they’ll show you how to do it all.

  2. I have the same issue. At least it’s one way my expensive IT Tech support degree is put to good use. ROFL

  3. I have the same problem with our desktop computer…it shuts down when it gets overheated b/c the fan doesn’t work well…it has gotten so ridiculous that we’ve stopped using it. We’ve only replaced it once, but I can’t imagine stocking up on three at once! GEEZ!! 😛

  4. Vera, my husband bought me one of these for my birthday and works like a dream http://www.amazon.co.uk/Logitech-939-000288-Speaker-Lapdesk-N700/dp/B0033AGAEO I wonder if something like that would help? At least if it just reduces how often you have to buy a new laptop fan?

    • Thanks — Im pretty sure I burned through that one too. Im buying external fans. I don’t know what it is.

      It could be that I work with the computer on my lap? so maybe my extra body heat or something??? drives me insane

      LOL!

  5. Oh, for some reason it doesn’t really explain on there – it has a fan that keeps your laptop cool from underneath! And great sounding speakers in the sides, too.

  6. I use one of these, Vera:http://www.amazon.co.uk/Targus-Lap-Chill-Mat-17-inch/dp/B002Q8X3L2/ref=sr_1_7?ie=UTF8&qid=1292767909&sr=1-7

    I also sit with my laptop on my lap. This stops the laptop from heating up (has its own fan) and also somehow keeps cool itself on the tray so the underneath the laptop is cold and it keeps my legs from burning!

    You could always buy a laptop table from Ikea? I’ve heard good things about them.
