Now that the prices have come down, most people with computers have laptops. And laptops being portable, come with a wide array of useful laptop accessories. Here is a list of 10 accessories that you can’t do without.
1. Wireless Mouse
If you haven’t yet tried a wireless mouse—do so! Going back to wrestling with that cable is almost impossible. Plus it makes packing up and going neater and faster.
2. Portable Hard Drive of Flash Drive
Portable hard drives and flash drives are great ways to transfer large amounts of data, or to have a back up of the files on your laptop in the event that the unthinkable happens. Portable hard drives have greater storage capacity (1 TB); whereas flash drives are tiny and easy to carry on your key chain.
3. Mobile Broadband Card
If you want internet connectivity on the go, then consider getting a Mobile Broadband Card.
4. Mobile Wireless Router
In situations where you don’t have access to Mobile Broadband, and are tied to an internet cable (such as in a hotel where the wireless doesn’t work) you can use a Mobile Wireless Router.
5. Speaker System
The sound quality on laptops can be quite atrocious. A USB speaker system can provide great sound quality and the ease of portability. They come in a wide range of power and quality, with just two examples listed below.
6. Laptop Desk
Laptops aren’t really meant to sit on your lap. They need ventilation, and can get quite hot on the underside. A laptop desk is a convenient way to use your laptop on your lap.
7. Surge Protector
Surge protectors aren’t just for desktops, they are important for laptops too.
8. Laptop Carrying Case
Laptops require protection, and if you don’t have a backpack or suitcase with a protected laptop area, you can get a specialized Laptop Carrying Case.
9. Laptop Vault
You may want an extra layer of protection, especially on travel, to protect your laptop and your data. In that case, you may consider a Laptop Vault.
10. Laptop Vacuum
Let’s face it, crumbs from your favorite snacks continually fall into your laptop keyboard. The solution is a USB Powered Laptop Keyboard Vacuum specially designed for getting in between the keys.
