Laptop Accessories

post #1 of 3
Thread Starter 
I just got me a Lenovo Thinkpad Twist 2 (specs in the sig) for college. I want to know what accessories you laptop lovers would suggest for me to get.

I'd love to get a cooling pad like the NZXT Cryo X60, but the NZXT coolers are very expensive. Any suggestions?

I also want a case/slip of some sort, but other than a lightly padded cloth slip and a backpack, I don't know what options are out there.

If you have any other suggestions, feel free to make them. The cheaper, the better!

Will you be using the laptop as your main PC in a dorm or something?
I don't see the need for accessories other then a slip case if your not using it extensively.

The only two laptop accessories I bought was a Puma Engineer 13"slip case for like 12 bucks on sale.
Very comfortable inside, hugs my MBP13" and has a good bit of protection and is light.

And a Mini Display Port to VGA adapter for a external monitor.
I hate borrowing those things on campus so its good to have one with me. Plus at home I can hook up my monitor at home and run all my work off my laptop. I just need a VGA Y splitter cable now so I can use both my monitors biggrin.gif

I use it for movies and such in bed a lot. I also take it to friend's houses and use it for light gaming. Thanks for the case suggestion. I'm looking at this case and this cooling pad.
