First off I am grateful to Avantec who sent me the Avantec CP-07 Premium Cooling Pad for the purposes of trying and posting a review.

Inside the box is the Avantec CP-07 Premium Cooling Pad in bubble-wrap and 2 rubber feet and a USB cable. The pad is nicely designed, 15 inches wide X 10 inches deep and just over 1 inch thick. Black plastic moulding has a black metal grill on top. The CP-07 Premium Cooling pad is lighter than it looks clocking in at 146g with the USB cable stowed and 116g without the cable. So it is light enough to carry around and sturdy enough to handle any laptop up to 17 inches in size.
