10 best laptop accessories for working professionals

Laptop Wireless Mouse

Arguably the next most important accessory for a laptop is a wireless mouse. Now of course you can always buy a mouse with a cord, but these tend to be far less convenient than wireless mice.

The reason behind this is that you will have to untangle the wires of your cord mouse every time you take it out of your laptop bag.

Furthermore, constantly moving your accessories around can damage the cord that is connected to the mouse.

Typically, cord mice are ideal for stationary desktop computers, while wireless mice are best for portable laptop computers.

OK, without further ado, let’s get started.


  • Long battery life
  • Ergonomic shape
  • Convenient controls
  • Programmable controls
  • USB receiver will be provided inside or along with the mouse

If you are looking for a highly popular wireless mouse that is both affordable and comfortable, then we recommend the Logitech M510.

The mouse has a long battery life of 2 years and is designed to fit very comfortably in your hand.

There are also a few extra buttons on the mouse that you can program to switch between windows, turn the volume down, and more.

I highly recommend this wireless mouse for both students and professionals.

  • Ridged, rubberized scroll wheel for maximum accuracy
  • High precision 16, 000 DPI optical sensor
  • Customizable Chroma RGB color profiles
  • 9 programmable buttons
  • Ambidextrous design

On the other hand, if you are looking for a laptop wireless map that is designed for gaming, then we recommend the Razer Lancehead (Tournament Edition).

The gaming mouse has advanced optical sensors, great exterior design and form, light customizations, DPI buttons, and much more. It is the perfect esports-level mouse for gaming.

External Hard Drive

Typically, buying a laptop with a lot of integrated memory is quite costly. Therefore, purchasing an external hard drive usually goes hand in hand with purchasing a new laptop.

Even if you do not need the extra space, a HDD allows you to transfer large files of projects, reports, etc from device to device.

  • Small and compact design
  • 2TB of storage to expand your PC’s HDD
  • Very lightweight
  • The design seems a bit physically weak

This external HDD from Seagate is a favorite among many. This is not surprising as the HDD is fast, ultra-slim, looks great, and is available on Amazon.

It needs no additional power source, as transfers and power supply are done via the same cable when connected to the PC.

  • USB 2.0 compatible with no external AC power cord needed
  • Sleek profile design with a matte, smudge resistance finish
  • Includes Toshiba 1 year standard limited warranty
  • Quickly add more storage capacity to your PC
  • Easy to use with no software to install
  • Don’t use it as a bootable drive

Another good option for an external hard drive (with USB 3.0) is the Toshiba HDTB410XK3AA Canvio Basics. It comes in four capacities: 1TB, 2TB, 3TB, and 4TB.

It is easy to use and doesn’t need software to install. Therefore, it quickly adds more storage capacity to your laptop.

USB 2.0 is compatible with no external AC power cord needed.

At an affordable price, this is a reliable and easy to come accessory for your laptop.
