5 Cool Laptop Gadgets
The invention of portable computers has expanded the possibilities of our busy lives. We can now take both our work and fun with us everywhere we go. The further addition of Wi-Fi technology has made it possible to access the internet and email without a “physical” connection to the network. There are also many other gadgets out there that make our laptop usage easier and more productive. Here are 5 gadgets that will make your portable computing experience better:
Wireless Mini Mouse – Laptops don’t come with a mouse, as the producers of laptops have implemented touch-pads in their devices. With your finger, you can drag the cursor wherever you want, allowing you to use computer applications. For some people, this feature is kind of inconvenient. You can solve this problem by getting a wireless mini mouse. A mini mouse is a great and convenient USB device. You simply plug it in into our laptop, and then you can start using a mouse instead of the touchpad.
Wireless Number Pad – Laptop keyboards, because of their limited sizes, don’t feature num-pads like regular desktop keyboards do. For people who do a lot of work in accounting, using Excel, or simply input a lot of number calculations, a num pad is simply necessary. To solve this problem, you can purchase a wireless num pad add-on. Simply plug it in to your laptop, similar to the mini mouse, and enjoy the benefits of a num-pad.
Wireless Presenter – Also, commonly known as a “clicker”, this is an absolutely “must have” gadget if you use your laptop to show a PowerPoint presentation for either a business meeting or school presentation. It works sort of like a remote control, allowing you to change slides, like you can change television channels, with a click of a button. Now you can focus on presenting your presentation instead of worrying about clicking the mouse to change slides.
Cooling Pad – Sometimes our laptops can overheat. Believe it or not, it does happen. The cause of overheating may be due to a laptop being placed on the wrong kind of surface where there is not enough air supply to the cooling fan. A cooling pad will solve this problem. You simply place the laptop on this cool gadget and the overheating problem is solved.
CushTop – This is one of my favorite laptop gadgets. I often use my laptop while sitting on the couch or in bed. The CushTop provides a comfortable padding for your laptop. Simply put the CushTop on your lap, and then place the laptop on top. Besides comfort to us, the CushTop also provides a flat surface that can prevent accidental laptop overheating. Some of the CushTops come with additional pockets and storage capacities.
