A laptop computer certainly provides you with an
unprecedented level of freedom and mobility away from the
office. However there are a few extras you might want to
bring along on your laptop travels:

Extra 1: portable printer

If you travel a lot, you never know when you might need to
commit one of your digital documents to paper.

Sure, you can probably find a Kinko's, or even the business
center at your hotel, but the experienced business traveler
knows you're much better off when you're not at someone
else's mercy.

Extra 2: USB hub

If you need to connect to several external devices
simultaneously, the one or two USB ports on your laptop may
or may not be sufficient. If not, keep an inexpensive four-
port USB hub in your laptop case.

Extra 3: PC card token ring adapter

Ethernet is the industry standard for computer networking,
however back in the 1970s IBM introduced a competing
technology called Token Ring.

While Token Ring has all but faded from the mainstream, some
hardcore IBM'ers still use it.

If you're going to be working in such an environment, you'll
need a PC Card to connect to the network.

Extra 4: Foreign power kit

If you travel abroad, you're bound to run into a wide
variety of power schemes - power schemes that aren't
compatible with your laptop.

When you're away from the homelandFind Article, you'll need some sort of
adapter/converter if you want to plug into a local wall
outlet.

These are relatively inexpensive and can be easily found
online.
