Computer accessories are secondary technological devices added to computer systems to make them function better or make them more useful. An accessory can be essential, as in the case of a keyboard and mouse for a desktop computer, or less useful if they service a niche need. Computer accessories cover a broad spectrum of devices and include keyboards, mice, printers, calculators, drawing tablets, and others. Computer accessories are typically made to be cross-compatible across their specific industries from laptop computers to smartphones and tablets. Users can use accessories to create their own customized workspace tailored to the way that they perform certain tasks or want to interact with their devices.
Get rid of unwanted computer accessories by either selling them if they are in excellent condition or donating them to charity if they are in a working condition. If your computer accessory is too old and not in working condition you can recycle through various programs available to consumers.
The most common computer accessories include flash drives, USB hubs with card readers, and wireless keyboards. Other computer accessories are hard shell cases for laptops, laptop stands, and wireless speakers. Cases for laptops, keyboard covers, printers, and headphones are also common computer accessories.
Computer accessories that are for people with disabilities include joysticks and trackballs for physically challenged people and eye-controlled mouse devices that offer users the ability to control computers with their eyes. Other accessories available are ergonomic keyboards that are split in the middle and sip-and-puff input device technologies that enable the user to control screen actions through breathing and exhaling.
