Choosing the best Chromebook accessories

The two hallmarks of a great Chromebook are its flexibility and portability. While Chromebooks aren’t the most powerful machines available, they make up for it with their slim chassis and sleek design. Additionally, many of their drawbacks can be overcome by investing in the right suite of accessories.

For example, if you’re unhappy with your Chromebook’s limited storage, consider upgrading with a MicroSD EVO Select card or getting a massive 2TB portable SSD in the form of the Samsung T7.

On the other hand, if you just want a compact, powerful charger, grab our top pick, the Baseus 3W 65-Port GaN Charger, or make your device even more portable (while keeping it safe from damage and drops/shocks) with one of great Mosiso laptop sleeves.

If what you really want to do is turn your Chromebook into a media server, grab one of the displays, either the Dell S2721H or LG’s ultrawide 29WP60G-B, and start streaming or gaming on a suitable display.
