Accessories for your New Laptop

At the start of the year, some discounts were simply too good to pass up. Laptops from Lenovo, Dell, Sony, Samsung, Acer, and more have had their prices lowered by retailers. There were also some very good MacBook deals.

However, you wouldn’t be entirely sorted, even if you took advantage of one of those discounts and brought home a new laptop to start 2021. Why? Because you’ll need a variety of accessories to complete your new portable PC experience.

There are a myriad of devices and attachments that will make your laptop better. Whether you use it at home for business, or for leisure and take it to the park to play online games – whatever your lifestyle – there’s an accessory to make things easier and much more enjoyable.

Because many modern laptops lack ports, a multi-port USB hub could be just what you need to boost your productivity. A second monitor that slides out might provide you the extra screen real estate you need for multitasking. With the correct laptop stand, you can instantly convert any desk into a standing workstation for superior ergonomics. Continue reading to learn about the essential laptop add-ons you need in your life.

1 – Logitech HD Pro C920x

Install a high-resolution HD webcam on your laptop.

The webcam that comes built into new computers is almost always disappointing. With the Logitech HD Pro C920x, you may completely bypass it. It boasts dual microphones that can filter out background noise during web conference calls, in addition to improved 1,080-pixel video.

2 – Logitech G Pro mechanical keyboard

If you’re a PC gamer or a frequent typer, an excellent mechanical keyboard is a must-have. They improve your in-game reactions, your typing accuracy, and your overall keyboard experience – all by a fraction of a second.

We like various mechanical keyboards, but our personal favorite is the Logitech G Pro. With a detachable USB cord and dedicated media keys, it’s a responsive, ergonomic, and somewhat quite an easy keyboard to use.

You don’t need to splash a lot of hard cash on a mechanical board with RGB lights and other high-end capabilities. A solid mechanical board with Cherry MX, Razer, or Logitech switches will go a long way to improving your PC experience if you choose a more basic feature list.

3 – Readydesk 2 Adjustable Standing Desk

Buy a standing desk for your laptop and save your back.

You might be considering buying a standing desk for a lot of money, but why not bypass the insane price tag by acquiring this wooden “workspace elevator” with a pair of adjustable shelves for a lot less. 

4 – Stadia Premiere

Turn your laptop into a gaming console.

Do you think your new laptop isn’t up to the task of gaming? With this set-up, you can play a vast library of games on your computer as long as it has Wi-Fi and a decent broadband connection. You won’t need to expend a single kilobyte of storage space for game installation. Stadia is a gaming platform that broadcasts games to your laptop (as well as your phone, TV, and tablet) and could be the future of gaming.

5 – Icon Backpack 

It fits laptops up to 16 inches in size and has plenty of extra pockets and compartments for all your belongings.

You’re not ready to take your laptop outside if you don’t have a bag or backpack for it. There are many stunning and practical laptop bags on the market, but the Icon has been selected as the best all-around laptop bag for 2021. 

It has a large capacity, is fully padded, and is constructed of Woolenex, which is abrasion and water-resistant. It provides space for laptops up to 15.6 inches and a tablet, as well as charging cable pass-throughs to keep all of your devices charged while you’re on the go.

6 – SideTrak Portable Monitor

Stash a second display and slide it out from under your laptop’s lid.

A monitor is a costly item, but it’s well worth it if you need more screen area. With a 12.5-inch IPS display that slides on rails from the top of the laptop lid, this portable monitor extends your desktop. It’s compatible with PCs, Macs, and Chromebooks – it’s certainly more convenient than lugging about a second monitor.

7 – Kingston 7-In-1 Type-C USB Hub

The daddy of all USB devices is the Type-C USB hub.

The Kingston 7-in-1 hub can help you get up and running if your laptop is lacking in ports. It has USB-A, USB-C, SD, and Micro-SD card slots, and a 4K HDMI output for connecting to a second monitor.

8 – Microsoft Arc Mouse

Bluetooth mouse that folds up for travel.

Many wireless mice are available, but my personal favorite is Microsoft’s Arc Mouse, which folds flat for travel and snaps into a curve when you need to get down to business. It’s available in ten distinct colors.

With these clever accessories, you can make your home office as pleasant as possible. They’ll not only help you be more productive, but they’ll also make your life easier.
