|Performance and Final Thoughts|
In the not too distant past, laptops ran much cooler than they do now. Consumers were quite content for their mobile computer to be slower than their desktop computer. People didn't care if they couldn't processes large amounts of data in a split second while on the road. Times have changed. Today we expect lightning fast performance from a laptop and the performance line between desktop and laptop PC has all but merged.
Dual-core laptops have become the standard, and while they claim some major energy consumption improvements, they still get darn hot when under full load. Today we are taking a look at a product from Vizo that helps provide better cooling for your portable PC while you're on the road, at home, or even at the office. We've got the Vizo Mini-Ninja on our bench and will find out if this small new actively cooled product from Vizo has big performance and what it takes to put out the fire of a Core 2 Duo laptop.

First look at the Mini Ninja:
We received the mini-Ninja about two weeks after Jill contacted us and asked us if we were interested. We are always interested in cooling products if they provide better temperatures and in turn prolong the life of your laptop. We agreed and in a couple of weeks we had the mini-Ninja and if you are fan on Ninja’s you may be happy with this product.
The Vizo Mini-Ninja has a much smaller footprint than many other laptop coolers on the market. It still manages to house a couple of fans that are USB powered from a single USB connector. What makes this adapter unique is that the USB connector has pass-through capabilities. The Mini-Ninja is not meant to support the entire laptop – instead the cooler is designed to support the backend of the laptop with the front end of the laptop remains on the desk.
