Sometimes the simplest stuff that you find lurking in the corners of Amazon, can turn out to be must-have things that you never realized you needed. Those of us that use computers have become used to the plethora of cables that spew across the desktop. They look untidy and occasionally they get in the way. USB cables, the cable that links the PC to the external hard drive, mouse cables, the cable that runs to the keyboard. They curl across the desktop wasting large amounts of valuable working space. How simple it is for a 3 pack of SurfaceSnaps to completely organize this mess. If only we had known.

Until you have used an ergonomically designed office chair like the NOUHAUS it’s difficult to appreciate the difference it makes. That old dining room chair has worked simply fine, right? But once you have owned a chair like this, you will never settle for anything less. Think about how much time that you spend in your computer chair each day. If you work from home then you probably spend more time with this piece of furniture than any other, but probably you have never thought of a quality chair as a must-have item.

It is an investment.
Just like a quality chair can transform your posture, so a ZenBook can make a massive difference to your productivity. This is definitely another must-have Amazon item to add to your wish list of cool stuff to buy. Whoever thought of upgrading the touchpad on a laptop into a mini touch screen that is bursting with added functionality is a genius. This special feature of the ZenBook allows you to keep the main screen on your laptop maximized, with navigational tools and speciality tools moved onto the touchpad. Stuff like the calculator, or the list of open apps sits there out of the way, while you work on the main screen.

MakerBot Replicator + 3D Printer
When 3D printers first appeared, there was a lot of speculation that the future would be one where we each had a 3D printer at home, and instead of buying items from our local store, we would simply print out one at home.
