4 Peripherals Every Computer Owner Should Have


The peripherals that every computer owner should have are a mouse, keyboard, monitor, and printer. These peripherals will make your computing experience much more enjoyable. The peripherals enhance the capability of the computer to perform tasks by providing input for it to act on. Without peripherals, you would be limited in what you could do with your PC or laptop. They also help facilitate communication between other people who may not be present at the same time as you are using your device.

It is also good to have peripherals that do not go obsolete as fast as the computer itself does, especially peripherals such as a printer which you may use for many years.

The mouse is the most common peripherals for computer users. It allows you to control your cursor on your screen and select items by clicking with a button. A wireless mouse uses radio waves to connect to the receiver that connects it with the computer, while an optical mouse has an LED light-source or laser which moves across the surface of the desk (or other surface) when in use. The movement of this light source across its surface can be tracked by a photo sensor, similar to how RCA works in television sets; thus allowing it to work without any wires.

Keyboard peripherals are an important tool for computer owners to have. These peripherals allow the user to type on a keyboard without having to sit in front of their monitor during use. There are many different types of peripherals, including wireless keyboards and portable keyboards. A person can also invest in input devices such as trackpads or mice which will help them navigate through their computer more easily than with just a keyboard alone. It is important that you take the time to research all your options before making any decision about what peripherals you want because not every option is appropriate for everyone’s needs–especially if they need something very specific like backlit keys or ergonomic design features.


The monitor is one of the peripherals that every computer owner should have. It is a device that displays information from a computer to the user. It can be connected to the computer using a video cable or wirelessly using a wireless adapter. The monitor can also have speakers and a camera that are able to capture images from the screen and transmit them as well as sound from the screen to a remote location over a telephone line or wireless connection.


Printers are peripherals that come in handy when you need to print out a document or photo. There are many different types of printers, such as laser and inkjet, but the most common type is called an “inkjet printer.” These peripherals can be found at your local electronics store for about $100. Inkjet printers use ink cartridges which cost anywhere from $25-$50 depending on the size of the cartridge and how much ink it holds. When you buy these peripherals, make sure they’re compatible with your computer system: Mac OS X 10.4 (Tiger) or higher; Windows 2000 SP4 or higher; Linux kernel 2.6 or higher; USB port available on PC laptop models manufactured after September 2004, home or office PC.
