If you are the proud new owner of a Chromebook (or even if you are one of the Chromebook veterans) then you are probably wondering what sort of accessories you can pick up for your Chromebook. Well, there is surprisingly quite a few options available. In fact, there is a lot. So to help you see what is on offer, below are ten products that you can currently pick up to make the Chromebook experience even better. All of them won’t be for everyone, but hopefully there is something on the list for everyone.

One item that you might want to pick up for your newly purchased Chromebook is a HDMI to VGA adapter lead. This will give you the opportunity to connect your Chromebook to an actual monitor. Of course, if your monitor at home or work has a HDMI port then you can use that, however, if it doesn’t, then this will be your best bet. Is worth remembering though, this type of lead does not support audio.
