#6 Laptop Cooling Pad
I have an older Lenevo laptop computer upon which I rely heavily for work and entertainment.
While it is a great machine, it tends (like most laptops) to overheat especially when I am running some programs in the background or playing an online game.
I also like to stream movies from my computer in bed and we all know that a laptop will overheat very fast when placed directly on blankets.
I bought this laptop cooling pad two years ago after a friend’s computer died from overheating and I am really glad I did. This is probably one of the most useful laptop accessories I own and I credit the Havit Laptop Cooling Pad with extending my aging computer’s lifespan.
This cooling pad comes with a convenient extra USB plug and is also relatively quiet.
I can definitely vouch for its sturdiness. I eat and drink at my desk and I also have a long-haired cat who loves to “cuddle” with the computer. Neither food crumbs nor kitty has had any adverse effect on it and it has been running smoothly for the past two years.
As I was finishing this review, I lifted my laptop from its cooling pad and touched its bottom; it is perfectly cool and you would never guess that my machine has been in use for the past three hours.

#7 Logitech HD Pro Webcam C920
Growing up in the 70s, cell phones, laptops and video calls were the kind of technology that you might see in sci-fi movies. We had bulky landline phones and international calls were very expensive. I had no idea that I would get to make free transatlantic video calls in my lifetime.
Since I have family and friend all over the world, I am very grateful to Skype which lets me talk to my mom for free on a weekly basis even though the quality of transatlantic calls might sometimes leave a bit to be desired.
One way to improve your video calls’ quality is by having a great webcam and this is exactly what the Logitech HD Pro C920 is.
The C920 is the #1 moderately priced starter webcams recommended by professionals who make their living broadcasting live as well as by Youtuber.
The C920 plugs in your laptop USB port and is very easy to set up.Its visual quality is truly awesome and the images are crystal clear.The microphone is also excellent. It can clip easily on most tripods and I can tell you from first-hand experience that this lightweight camera is quite sturdy.

#8 Adorable Octopus USB Hub USB Port Extender.
I have a sturdy old desktop computer that I built myself but I prefer to work and play on my laptop.
While I enjoy having a portable, light versatile machine at my disposal, one thing I do not like about most laptops is that they only have a limited number of USB ports.
Once I have plugged in my webcam, my laptop cooling pad and my USB mouse, I am left with only one USB port for my flash drive, portable hard drive, my cell phone charger etc.
Fortunately, I stumbled upon that very cute octopus USB Hub port extender at my local computer parts store.
I am now able to plug in all my peripherals in my laptop at once.
This smart splitter lets me turn one USB port into 4, is compatible with most operating systems and feature a very easy plug and play installation.
