If your computer has ever come to a crawl you probably didn't have enough memory. A lack of memory is the leading cause of systems becoming unbearably slow. So stock up now when memory is dirt cheap and avoid those expensive upgrades.

mSATA SSD drives are a new smaller form factor type of hard drive that are much faster than traditional spinning disk drives and are found in newer higher end computers. SSD drives will usually cut boot and application start times by about half.

Avoid future expenses with an extended warranty.

Add bluetooth capability to your computer with a Penguin Bluetooth USB Micro Adapter. A Bluetooth USB adapter enables you to connect Mice, Phones, Keyboards, Speakers, and other devices wirelessly to your computer.

Match the décor of your new PC with a keyboard and mouse that isn't tied to Microsoft. All of our desktop keyboards and mice are of high quality and never include a MS logo (keyboard & mice product details)

Select one of our awesome mousepads. Check out the great pictures in our catalog.

While most monitors include a standard VGA, DVI, or HDMI cable newer systems frequently need a mini version of the cable. Check what type of connection your monitor has and get one of the following compatible mini cables.

If you want more desk space, a newer flat panel monitor may be just what you need. Flat panel monitors take up less desk space and have wider screens for a larger viewing area. Only available for shipping within continental US. Standard cables included.

Need to transfer data from an old computer? Don't let an old USB flash drive slow you down. Get a fast USB 3.0 flash drive or an even faster USB SuperSpeed SSD Drive.

Don't forget an extension cable. If your ports are too close together there may not be enough room for connecting components. Pick up a short 6" / 152 mm USB extension cable with your order. See picture for details.

Get extra ports! If you have lots of accessories take advantage of a USB hub to keep everything organized and connected.

Our AC adapters are compatible with power grids around the world. However each AC adapter needs a cable to connect to your local outlet. Pick the one that is suitable for you. If you have any questions contact support.
