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.

Don't just get a bigger drive. Get a faster drive. Experience twice the speed with a new solid state drive. Newer SSD technology can give you that boost you always wanted cutting start times in half and increasing the speed of programs.

In order to connect to a wireless network in GNU/Linux, you need a compatible wifi adapter. Many adapters aren't well supported- or supported at all. If you have an adapter that lacks native support, you may want to pick one up one of our adapters.

Add bluetooth capability to your computer with a Penguin Bluetooth USB Micro Adapter. Choose between a bluetooth 4.0 or V2.1 + EDR Class I adapter. Bluetooth enables you to connect Mice, Phones, Keyboards, and other devices wirelessly to your computer.

Match the décor with a white or black Penguin Keyboard and Mouse (color shipped system dependent). The keyboard and mouse set are perfect for the Penguin PC. No Microsoft Windows key here.

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.

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

USB flash drives are the ultimate mobile storage solution for people on the go. Want to share a new tune or pictures with your friends? Simply copy the file onto your USB flash drive and take it with you. Use it virtually anywhere USB is accepted.

We support users around the world and not everybody uses a North American power cable. Please select the one appropriate to you.

Avoid future expenses with a comprehensive warranty. Get at-your-door repair service, accidential coverage, and even data protection in one convenient package.

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 7" / 177 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.
