Buy Computer Stuff Online

Updated on November 21, 2012

You can order computer stuff online

Many of us have computers or know someone who has a computer. It's no surprise that many accessories and parts can be ordered online. After all, the online world is comprised of many interconnected computers with people staring at them. Without our electronic playthings, we'd have nothing to spend our money on. Here are just a few of the many items that can be ordered on line for your friends and relatives who might be sufficiently fortunate to own a computer during this festive time of the year.

Compressed Air

Your keyboard, and the keyboards of those you love, are encrusted with layers of filth that would gag a maggot. Beneath those keys are food reside from last Christmas as well as accumulations of skin cells sufficient to inspire Jurassic Park remakes. You dearly need a weapon to protect your favorite humans from what lies just millimeters beneath their typing fingers.

You need compressed air. Many thoughtful companies ingest air into their factories and cram it into cans for easy on-demand disbursal. Not all air is the same because some of it comes from countries where they don't have as much air as we do, but when spritzing your keyboard it's matters not.

Simply unplug your keyboard, take it outside where there's already some air, and point this can of compressed atmosphere at it. If some key-caps fly off, you're doing it right. Expect mass quantities of last years' Fritos to shoot up at your unprotected eyeballs.

Computer Mouse

If your computer doesn't have a mouse, it probably has a gerbil or a hamster and that's OK too. Most sentient computer users prefer the gentle touch of a solid plastic mouse beneath their controlling hand. This little contraption allows you to control your cursor to the nearest pixel and that's hardly ever a bad thing.

Look online for all different kinds of mouses. The shining example exemplified just to the right of this helpful verbiage might make a perfect gift for your favorite computer user: we're not here to judge. Actually, we are here to judge.

Computer System

We show our love and affection for those around us by spending lots of money on them as we fervently shop online. This computer system would make a splendid gift for anyone on your list who needs a computer system. You can't go wrong with this brand. The styling says "someone loves me in a high-tech way." The price is high, compared to a Chipotle gift card, but you can't browse the internet with a burrito.

Computer UPS

The "UPS" in the term "Computer UPS" stands for "Universal Power Supply" or Uninterruptible Power Supply". It provides neither of these functions: you can't use it on the surface of the Sun and the battery will eventually run down even if you are nowhere near the surface of the Sun. Regardless of this high-tech bad news, this type of device does provide much-needed functionality when the electricity goes off and you want to keep playing Call of Duty.

The thing contains, basically, a car battery and some electronics. When your neighbor turns on his particle accelerator and your electricity sags, depend on a Computer UPS to keep you up and running. When a limousine filled with American Idol contestants wraps itself around the pole in your front yard, your Computer UPS will laugh, electronically of course, and provide you with sufficient voltage to stay up and running so you can email the paramedics.

      6 years ago from Ohio, USA I also prefer pencil and paper, but it doesn't fit through the Ethernet cable. Yes, An entire limo of contestants did indeed not crash outside my house.

      It's not funny - it's stupendous - I don't have a computer and I don't know anyone who has a computer anymore - I prefer a typewriter or a fax machine, paper and pens and letterboxes. Did an American Idol contestant really crash outside your place?
