You love that laptop..
get a room.
Ha-ha. Seriously, you aren't going to be able to control the climate in a cooler or other small container. The big commercial buildings with roof-top HVAC units that need constant attention, have a control room somewhere above or below the roof. I did a contract for a hospital 13 years ago. Even then, part of my contract covered insulating and finishing these rooms. One above the roof and one on the ground floor. The PC at the ground floor controlled the units. The PC at the top was a service technicians over-ride. The above-the-roof room had it's own HVAC unit. It looked like a window AC unit. I suspect that you will be disappointed if you try to contain it in something small.
