What are laptop consumables?

Wednesday, March 11th, 2009 | laptops

A consumable is something that is depleted or worn out by use.  Laptop consumables are those items that are used by a laptop user and will have to be replaced.

Inside the laptop itself there are no components that are consumed.  Unlike a car, no oil is used and there are no parts that wear out and then need to be replaced as part of preventative maintenance.  However, some peripherals are great users of consumables.

The average laptop user will use some of the following consumables:

  • toner or ink cartridges for printing
  • paper for printing
  • data or memory sticks
  • CDs and DVDs
  • batteries for wireless mouse and keyboard.

Are there any consumables that you could add to the list?

Laptop consumeables ….. the laptop itself after 3 years. Life expectancy maybe longer, nut a good % of a laptop has been…..after time…..almost everything “consumed”. Get a new updated one with the latest technology, software, operating system and drivers !!
