LAS VEGAS, Jan. 8 /PRNewswire/ — 2009 CES (Las Vegas Hilton, Suite #308)
– Targus(R) Inc., maker of the world’s top-selling laptop computer cases and
accessories, today unveiled its new cooling products to protect your lap and
laptop. Since creating the cooling category in 2002, Targus continues to
expand the line of cooling products to include solutions for use in the
office, at home and on the road. The new products include the Chill Mat,
