Which wrist rest should you choose?

Chromebooks are versatile devices for both work and play, ideal for business users, students, and average Joes looking for a reliable laptop, alike. While they typically come with the Chrome OS built-in, you can load them up with other goodies, like Microsoft Office, when additional productivity apps are needed.

Whatever the reason you use a Chromebook, if you're going to be typing away from some length of time, whether you're a writer, programmer, or work with word processing in some way, or even if you're a heavy gamer, a wrist rest can help ease the stress on your hands. And on this list, there's one to fit every need. But the i-rocks IRC41 is an all-around good choice that will offer breathability, comfort, and support.

Those who prefer something more than basic black will love the patterns and designs available with models like the MOSISO Wrist Rest Support and RICHEN Keyboard Wrist Rest. And if you use a mouse as well, especially for long work sessions, the fact that they come with matching mousepads is a bonus.
