Most of you know that I am a web designer. I have gone from a nice office in my home (feng shui decorated) to this. Now, don’t get me wrong, this setup is turning out to be just as powerful and efficient as my office at home. I bought an HP zd8000 Laptop (really a desktop replacement), Pentium 4, 3.2 GHz, and 1Gig of RAM. It is quite heavy but powerful (more so than my desktop) and has a beautiful 17″ screen. I bought a HP PSC 1215 All-In-One Printer (scanner, printer, and copier). So far it work very nicely. But I am truly trying to go paperless so I only use it for scanning or for some reading (I still can’t read a lot of content online).
I also bought a Genius (cheap) computer speakers. We use these instead of buying a new stereo system. I also still have my Wacom Tablet and wireless Logitech keyboard. In addition, I brought my Creative Webcam which has come in handy many time speaking/seeing family and friends.
I was able to get my DSL connected after a month and some frustrating conversations but so far it has worked wonderfully. My Vonage VOIP account has been very helpful keeping in touch with clients without incurring horrible long-distance fees. I have a computer microphone and headphones for private conversations.
