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.

M.2 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.

An optical drive lets you access the legacy DVD and CD media formats. With it you can watch movies, rip music, or access old backups. Optical drives can also be useful for recording small amounts of data for physical distribution to others.

Avoid future expenses with an extended warranty.

Add bluetooth capability to your computer with a Penguin Bluetooth USB Micro Adapter. Choose between a bluetooth 4.0. Bluetooth enables you to connect Mice, Phones, Keyboards, and other devices wirelessly to your computer.

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.

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.

Backdoors in modern computing devices are unfortunately a certainty today and while we can't be sure of a fix here it is possible to partially disable one potentially bad component. Option has side-effects, warranty is valid, but voids 14-day return.
