Okay! Agreed this may sound funny. But the truth is that accessorizing is not just for what you wear, it is also equally important for what you work with; your computer or laptop. What you get when you buy a packed computer straight from the shop to your home or office is never enough. Also accessorizing does not mean buying headphones or getting a jazzy cover for your laptop.
Accessorizing can include any of the following:
Operating System of your requirement (Windows/Macintosh)
Compatible multimedia software
Compatible office software
Connectivity options (Bluetooth, Infrared, etc.)
Wireless keyboard or Mouse
Extra Hard Disc
Extra RAM Memory
A printer and a scanner
Note that most of the above will not come with the PC or the laptop that you may buy off the shelf. So what will you get from the PCs that come in a box?
CPU- central processing unit
Fixed memory and hard disc space
An operating system that the manufacturer provides, which may not be compatible with the software that you have or may not fulfill you technical requirements.
So if you want to edit photographs in your PC, do some music mixing, video chat with your friends or even watch a DVD on your PC, chances are you will need to accessorize. How do you know what do you need?
Are you a business professional?
Consider getting back up options like extra hard drives, CD burner, etc. Don't wanna loose your valuable presentation now do you? Also accessorize your laptop/PC with a portable projection screen weighing less than 5lbs. and remote control projection device like pointers.
Are you a musician?
Are you a DJ or a musician? Do you need to record your beats often or mix music? An external hard drive with minimum 7200rpm to play audio tracks at high frequency and external USB ports to assist lots of plug-ins will come handy. Also to edit your recorded music ask for Software like Edit Pro or Audacity.
Are you a serious gamer?
A Joystick, extra keyboard and USB docks are must if gaming revs you up on the computer.
Are you into multimedia development?
Are you a graphic designer or a multimedia developer? Are you into character animation? Then you must have a pensketch and graphic drawing tablet for all your sketches. Using a mouse to sketch for longer periods is not good for your hand and posture.
Most importantly one should accessorize their computers when they buy one. You should not wait. Chances are technologies will be outdated and it will be difficult to get compatible hardware/software.
So next time that you are in the market for a computer, have a word with you computer sales assistant, discuss the features you will get with your PC and also the accessories that you may need before just buying the box and coming back home.
