I want to know too. I think that I'll need something soon. My new apartment has one window (another small one in the bathroom too) and that window faces a wall. So I don't have sunlight and in result not much heat (good air flow too)...yet. It's been unusally cool this month but I know that may not last. I'm looking for something small and cheap.

Portable units aren't great. It takes more energy to cool a room than the actual amount of heat you're removing from the air, so unless you find a way to really effectively vent a portable AC, it's not going to make a difference. In fact, if you just run it in a corner it's going to make the room hotter.

Just take it like a Man and quit whining (as I sit in the 96 degree, 100% humidity weather that we louisiana folk call sportsman's paradise) **lost another 5 pounds typing response**

I have one, one part is inside the house, the other part is outside. There is also a small pipe to evacuate water.

It works, is relatively expansive. The main problem is that, they are noisy (at least mine is very noisy).

i read that Maytag is the best brand. they are the least noisy as well, and you don't have to empty a water tray ever

i have one somewhere. a thing that you can bring with you in car etc. with a mls fire logo.

and i got a usb fan. it's great, but as it's so hot here, someone else hopefully uses the usb fan with full power this summer.

96 degrees! You pansy, try living in India! It was 115 here last week. And the average daily high here is over 100 degrees in May and June.
