Technology Basics: Accessory

Technology Basics: Accessory

Taking care of your computer is necessary if you want to get the maximum return on investment from such an expensive piece of hardware. Granted, this can be a lot to handle, as it includes cleaning your PC regularly, keeping security at its finest, and organizing all of the information stored on it. When it all works as intended, there is an immense feeling of satisfaction. This is when it’s most effective to look at accessories.

Accessories may have been a major part of using a computer in the past, but smartphones and tablets have changed the name of the game, so to speak. Accessories still make up a large portion of the costs associated with purchasing a computer, but what exactly constitutes an accessory?

Generally speaking, computer accessories will all provide various features to devices aiding in functionality, security, or support. These can be further split up into two different groups: basic and advanced accessories.

Basic Computer Accessories
Basic computer accessories generally aren’t as expensive, and they don’t usually come with their own power supplies. Some pieces of wireless technology aim to change this, however. Here are some basic computer accessories:

  • Cables and Wires
  • Keyboards and Mice
  • Speakers and Microphone
  • Webcam
  • Headsets
  • Flash Drives
  • Adapters
  • Bags and Cases

Advanced Computer Accessories
These more expensive computer accessories have a higher price tag, but also come with their own power supply. Another name for these accessories is peripherals. They tend to perform their own specialized tasks compared to basic computer accessories. They include:

  • Printers (Ink, and Toner)
  • Scanners
  • Charging Stations
  • Digital Signage
  • External Storage
  • Power Protection

Overall, every product you purchase for your computer other than the computer and monitor is considered an accessory. Peripherals that come with their own power supply can also fall into this category, as they can’t be used without a CPU.
