Hello, I found this bug. Can you tell me what is it, please?

This is bug that probably came out of an unused computer. It almost looks like a tick, but it seems to only have 6 legs and 2 antennae. Also it came out of a computer, not a forest.

The body is round and not flat.

This is in Brooklyn NY

Worry little: It certainly is not a tick. Weevil is my guess.

I agree with converge. As far as I can tell, the closest match would be a rose weevil. They exist throughout the US, although I don't know what one would be doing in your computer. They are normally garden pests.

My guess is Spider Beetle. They can be a minor nuisance, but are pretty easy to get rid of.

I agree with cardboard - spider beetle. Sticky traps are a good way to ensnare any others.
