Like most Chromebooks, the Chromebook Plus does not have a whole lot of storage available, but it does have an SD card slot available for expanding that storage, and this micro SD card is a great one to pick up.

Since the Chromebook Plus uses a USB-C connector, many people will likely need to pick up new cables to charge their Chromebook Plus. Luckily, you can also grab these adapters, and you'll be able to plug in virtually any micro USB cable to your Chromebook Plus and charge it. This works with other smartphones like the Huawei Mate 9, HTC 10 and others that use a USB-C connector.

This one is a wireless mouse with a USB dongle, so there's no Bluetooth connection here. It's somewhat small, so it's great for traveling, and it's not all that expensive either.
