When you're sitting down, and about to do a drop in either PS2 or MWO (or WoW, or whatever game you play) on your high powered gaming laptop, you don't want your balls roasting off. You need these.
So instead of saying "AW MY BALLS ARE ON FIRE!!!" you can be all like "Woah...that's cool..now I'm gonna pwn some n00bs" as you fire up the next match.
Enough with the humor. Time to get super serious. See, over time, increased heat can ruin your laptop's battery and CPU life. If you have inadequate air circulation around your intakes (and face it on most laptops the intakes are on the bottom) you start to roast your laptop. That is NOT good. I did that to mine. It's a PITA to crack open and fix too. I got one of these and I haven't had another overheat (after I re-applied the thermal grease to the heat sink..it was like baked clay I tell you..ugh)
Anyway here's all the technical stuff from the manufacturer's website. If it's tl;dr and you still want it, scroll down, read the loud red text, and push the "Buy Now" button.
