Mice and keyboards are classic accessories for home laptop use. At the same time, mice are the most popular at home: you can control, click and select, of course, using the clickpad, but in most cases this is not very convenient. A standard mouse next to a laptop significantly speeds up all the actions.
A separate keyboard may also be a worthwhile accessory to purchase. The fact is that on some mobile computers in 13-inch format, the buttons for the fingers of most users are too small, which interferes with smooth and fast typing.
Very cheap laptops often have too small hard drives. However, even higher-quality models equipped with fast, but also not the largest SSD drives, can be significantly improved with the help of an external storage device.
External hard drives in 2.5-inch format don’t take up much space next to a laptop, offer more than a terabyte of free space for storing your data, and at the moment, many models also provide surprisingly good value for money.
Small mouse: Microsoft Sculpt Comfort Mouse
Since time immemorial, Microsoft has been producing ergonomic mice, and a good example of this is the MS Sculpt Comfort Mouse: the solid body of the wireless laser mouse is made of durable plastic, which gives a very pleasant tactile sensation.
In addition, the flat front is in line with the habits of most people. Users of the operating system from the same manufacturer will surely like one addition: the blue button on the left side of the case opens the Windows start menu in any situation.
Luminous keyboard: Logitech K800 IT
Logitech K800 IT also connects to a laptop via Bluetooth, that is, it works without wires. According to the manufacturer, the operating time on a single charge is ten days.
If the battery that is included in the package still runs out, simply connect the K800 IT to a power source via a USB cable and in three hours the gadget will be ready for autonomous operation again. Thus, by the way, you have a choice — you can use the keyboard both as a wireless keyboard and as a regular one with a wire.
This full-size keyboard has 109 buttons, so it can offer a full range of features, including a separate number pad and color-coded function keys. Additional comfort when working even in low light conditions will provide backlighting of the keys.
More space for the same money: Toshiba Canvio Basics 2TB
