Explore these awesome laptop gadgets that will no doubt make it a joy to work on or use your laptop.
Laptop Keyboard Protector Skin
These are thin materials made or either plastic, silicon or polyurethane used to cover the keyboard of a laptop.
They are a great choice for protecting your laptop keyboard from dust and minor spills of water, juice or any other fluids. Comparatively, silicone is a more protective and stronger substance which cannot be penetrated by liquids (unless they are corrosive alcohol), such as oil and water.
However, sometimes it can be annoying to keep the floppy sheet with the system. Can be bought from Amazon US.
Laptop Cooling Pad(ft Kootek Laptop Cooling Pad)
The Kootek Chill Mat 5 is a high quality cooling pad with flexibility in spades, and benefits from a mid-range price-tag. Housing a dual USB hub for connecting additional devices, with a pair of stoppers at the front to prevent your laptop from sliding off no matter which of the six different height options you end up choosing. It’s an all-rounder and qualifies to be called the budget laptop cooling pad. It can accommodate laptops sized between 12 and 17 inches, has a total of 5 fans of which you can switch between modes that activate only one fan, four fans, or all five.
Quite alright the number of fans doesn’t always necessarily indicate cooling power but it does tell us that it can dispense some heat, which is a good thing.

External Hard Drive/Storage
We have to agree here that no matter what amount of storage space your device/laptop has, its just never enough. Therefore, consider the following before you think of buying one:
First you must consider how much space you need for all your files, secondly are you looking for the external hard drives with traditional drives or external SSDs (these are faster but please note that they are quite expensive for their speed, and you wont get much in terms of capacity), and thirdly your budget. So it really depends on how much storage space you need and how much you’re willing to spend for it.
