William K.'s response is correct. Going a little farther, once the heat is in the plenum air laminar vs turbulent doesn't matter so much. What matters most is the volume of heated air leaving the system. High volume usually means high speed and turbulent.
The evaluation in the blog is correct in asserting that turbulent flow is much better for heat removal, and the reason goes a bit further as to why laminar flow does not pick up heat as well. In a truely laminar flow situation the fluid molecules next to the surface may not be moving at all, and the next layer are moving very slowly, with a classical velocity gradient up to the fastest moving molecules, which are usually those farthest from the wall. The result is that heat is primarily transfered to the air br conduction through the stagnant layers. This is the mechanism of laminar flow's poorer performance.
Not the most exciting explanation in the world, but some useful background stuff.

In a bid to boost the viability of lithium-based electric car batteries, a team at Lawrence Berkeley National Laboratory has developed a chemistry that could possibly double an EV’s driving range while cutting its battery cost in half.
For industrial control applications, or even a simple assembly line, that machine can go almost 24/7 without a break. But what happens when the task is a little more complex? That’s where the “smart” machine would come in. The smart machine is one that has some simple (or complex in some cases) processing capability to be able to adapt to changing conditions. Such machines are suited for a host of applications, including automotive, aerospace, defense, medical, computers and electronics, telecommunications, consumer goods, and so on. This discussion will examine what’s possible with smart machines, and what tradeoffs need to be made to implement such a solution.
