I thought it would be cool to see what people like using with their notebooks? My Sager is on order so to pass the time I've been looking at a few things online such as notebook coolers, mice, game controllers, etc. A few things I'm looking at...

1. NZXT Black Aluminum Notebook cooler
2. Logitech VX Nano wireless mouse
3. Logitech Cordless RumblePad controller

So whats your setup for gaming or general use?

Yeahhhh!!! Go sixaxis! PS3 is the shit. I got your back haha.

Anyway, I just got the X-Fi Expresscard and I've got to say it's pretty sweet :-).
Also, any decent powered speaker system with a big fat woofer haha.
Mice are mice to me...
Oh, and the Zalman NC2000 is a lifesaving cooler for my 8662. Only cooler that isn't a total POS.

lol I chose the Rosewill one w/ the USB hub over the Zalman NC2000. I like it; can't comment on the Zalmans though, since I never used it...

Full Load:
CPU Highest- 71C
GPU Highest- 82C
GPU Average- 70s; the 82C seems to be a spike.

*EDIT*
As for accessories, I do also love the PS3 SixAxis controller; I play my old PS games with that via my laptop (PSXEmulator ftw).

*PS3 Controller
*Laptop Cooler (in this case, my Rosewill)
*Creative X-Fi ExpressCard
*Logitech G5 (for some reason, I hate wireless)
*HanTech Tablo (http://www.google.com/search?client=firefox-a&rls=org.mozilla%3Aen-US%3Aofficial&channel=s&hl=en&q=HanTech+Tablo&btnG=Google+Search); ALL STUDENTS! GET THIS NOW!!! It works GREAT!

Oh, no... by PS emulator, I meant the original PSX; not PS2. I love classic PS games (Final Fantasy!!) :P.
