Okay, so you’ve got yourself a shiny new MacBook, complete with its nifty retina display. If you’re like me, though, you’re probably the kind of person who would cherish it way too much to take it anywhere. I know, ironic considering it’s a laptop, and made specifically for its portability, but let’s be honest — it’s an expensive piece of hardware. So, that being the case, why wouldn’t you want to take extra special care of it? I know I would. One of my chief concerns — especially during these hot summer months — is heat. True, the MacBook is built with asymmetrical, low-noise fans that will kick on to help cool things off, but there’s no reason you can’t give those fans some room to breathe. That’s where the AirSlab comes in.
For those of you who like to keep your MacBook well ventilated, the AirSlab makes for a classy solution. Crafted out of your choice of full grain Walnut, or Baltic Birch, each slab features circular holes that’ll give your Macbook — or almost any laptop really — the space it needs to breathe, and cool. It also comes with cork pegs that allow you to prop it up for use on flat surfaces, like a desk or counter-top. Since the pegs are removable, you swap between using the slab with a desk or your lap at your leisure, so with any luck, you won’t have to worry about shifting around uncomfortably due to excess heat. If you’re interested, you can pick one up here — they retail for $49 each plus shipping.
