Tilt Mechanism for Cooling

      Disclosed is a cooling system for a notebook Personal Computer
(PC) and a laptop PC.  This system is constructed with the linked
tilt legs to a display unit and a heat sink in the bottom of the base
unit.

      The Figures show an example of this system.  The heat of a
Central Processing Unit (CPU) or other high heat output component is
moved to the heat sink in the bottom of the base unit through a heat
pipe or other high heat conductive material (Fig. 1).  Two tilt legs
are equipped at the back of the base unit.  These legs are linked to
the open/close operation of the display unit (Fig. 2).  These legs
are extruded in accordance with the opening of the display unit and
enclosed in accordance with the closing of the display unit.
Therefore, the space between the bottom surface of the base unit and
the top surface  of the desk is maintained.

This system provides good cooling conditions at the operational
environment.
