Laptops have become popular because of being portable. According to the desktop these laptops or netbooks have less feature.
A laptop also has some accessories that widen the scope of their usage. Given below are some of the accessories that are must for a laptop.
External USB DVD player and burner
A major problem with these netbooks is the absence of optical drives. Due to an unavailability of optical devices it becomes difficult to play a CD or a DVD which further create problems while installing any software or operating system in the notebook. It also creates problem to troubleshoot. The perfect way out to this problem is the use of USB drives. We just have to plug these USB drives to the notebook through its USB port. These derives don’t even require power to work.
Flash memory cards and flash disks
Else than expensive or top models laptops often come with a very less memory. But they have a provision to extend the memory by the use of a memory card. These laptops have a pre-installed memory card. Likewise flash disks are also a storage devise but can save data only upto 2GB. These flash drives are generally used for storing small files.
External USB Hard Drive
An external hard drive is another option that can be use to save hefty amount of data. These drives are mostly two inches in width and also have the capacity to store information upto 120GB. These drives also don`t need any power connection to work they can be used just by plugging them in port.
Wireless Keyboard and Mouse
These netbooks also have a disadvantage of having concentrated keyboards which are not much comfortable while working. Hence the regulae users generally switch to wireless keyboards and mouse as well.
A wireless router is required to connect the laptop to internet at home.

The computer maker unveiled two new notebooks on Friday that have already received kudos from the international environmental group. The Acer Aspire 3811TZ and Aspire 3811TZG are designed to be energy efficient, recyclable, and biodegradable, thereby winning high marks from Greenpeace, which rates PCs and other electronics for their environmental friendliness.
As part of its green initiatives, Acer said it built the two new Aspires to be free of PVCs (polyvinyl chloride) and BFRs (brominated flame retardants).
PVC is a cheap but durable plastic that has been criticized by Greenpeace for not being biodegradable and for emitting toxic substances into the environment. BFRs are chemicals added to plastics to make them more flame resistance, but these have also been accused of leeching into the environment. Their use in products for babies and children has especially concerned many groups. With the exception of the power cables, all components for both Aspires are free of these toxins.
“The chemical characteristics of PVC and BFRs may generate toxic substances like dioxins and furans at products’ end-of-life, therefore, the reduction of PVC and BFRs in Acer products will help protect our environment from being poisoned by electronics goods,” Acer said in a statement.
The new Aspires are also designed to cut energy use–both models can save up to 40 percent of the energy consumption of traditional notebooks, providing more than 8 hours of battery life, said Acer. Further, the company designed the units to be easily recycled. With more modular parts than in traditional notebooks, users can also extend the life of the Apires by replacing certain components.
The world’s first laptop with twin monitors is slated to hit the stores by the end of the year.
The dual-screen laptop, entitled Spacebook, was masterminded by Alaska-based technology firm gScreen.
The pioneering technology, that will let users to multi-task while on the move, will have two 15.4 in screens, reports the Telegraph.
The PC is estimated to cost enthusiasts around 3,000 dollars but not without concerns regarding the weight of the Spacebook and the pressure on the batteries to meet the energy demands of running two screens.
