- External Mouse
- Portable Hard Drive
- USB Thumb Drive
- External Monitor
- USB Hub
- Screen Privacy Protector

- Security Lock
Specific Needs Accessories

- External Graphics Card
- USB Number Pad

Even though trackpads and pointer sticks on today’s laptops give excellent mouse control, sometimes you want even more precision, or simply a change of ergonomics to prevent repetitive strains. This is where an external mouse provides you with both benefits, and we have hundred of options to choose from.
If you’re a gamer, you’ll probably want a wired mouse to eliminate even the slightest lag in response time. If you’re a work from anywhere road warrior with limited workspace or a student in a classroom taking notes, look for a wireless or Bluetooth mouse.
Portable hard drive
You can always use more storage, right? The size of the external hard drive you purchase depends on how you will use it. A portable, external hard drive not only expands the amount of space you have for large files like movies, it can also act as a backup device to your laptop’s internal storage.
If it will be used as a repository for really big files, a 2 TB hard drive is ideal, but if you’re only looking to back up your laptop contents, then a 256 GB SSD, 1 TB, or even 500 GB, may be enough. If durability is a concern, look for external hard drive models with rugged enclosures that protect against shock, dust, and water.
Even through laptop screens come in a variety of sizes up to 17 inch displays with 4k resolution, they still can’t compete with the sheer size and readability of a decent external monitor. The added real estate of an extra screen can serve triple duty: As a second screen for keeping a web page open while you write in your main window; as a larger monitor when you need to see more detail; or as a TV replacement for when it’s finally time to relax with a movie. A good monitor doesn’t have to cost an arm and a leg. Plenty of decent 19-inch or 21-inch models can be found for under $300.
There’s a lot of choices when it come to finding the best audio accessories. Many solutions are simple and inexpensive. Think about how what kind of sound quality you want. If you’re looking for better sound at home or in a dorm room, a regular pair of regular computer speakers may work just fine. If you need something portable, you can buy mini-soundbars that are powered directly by your laptop.
You simply can always use more USB ports. Some laptops – especially those used for replacing an old desktop computer – are equipped with four or more USB ports, which is typically enough for general use. However, smaller models tend to have far fewer ports, forcing users to swap which accessories they have connected, instead of having them all connected at once. A USB hub solves this problem by acting like a powerbar for USB, turning one USB port into many. They come in lots of sizes. If your laptop has a USB-C port, it has the ability to provide power as well as data connections, letting you choose hubs that are both small, and still packed with plenty of ports.
Screen privacy protector
Whether it’s sitting on a plane or in class, the last thing you want to worry about is a nosy neighbor checking out the contents on your display. A screen protector for privacy won’t shield your screen from prying eyes completely, but it will make it way harder for someone to steal a glance of what you’re working on. These display accessories do reduce screen brightness a bit, but that’s a small price to pay for privacy.
Speaking of privacy, a lot of users overlook the fact while they enjoy the free WiFi at their favorite coffee shop it can actually be an invitation to hackers to steal valuable personal information. VPN software acts as a private tunnel to shield from malicious intruders, connecting your computer to the website you’re visiting with bank-level encryption. It charges a small monthly fee. Although free VPN software is available, it tends to be ad-supported and slower and less reliable than the paid services.
Remember your laptop itself is often just as valuable to thieves as your personal data. If you have a habit of getting up and walking away from it in public places, or if you just want a protection from theft, a Kensington-style lock and cable may be something to consider. Easy to use anywhere, simply pass the cable around a permanent piece of furniture and snap the lock into the hole that’s already built into your laptop.
