For some reason I'm afraid to go wireless. I figure that the kind of stuff that makes up the vast majority of "content" the Internet is best left going through wires and not through my head.

No cell phone either.

Your DREAM Home 'Office' Set-up

Mine would be a devoted, talented, unpaid assistant doing all the work whilst I get all the credit. ;)

Sorry encyclo, but I already have a job...

As far as my dream office machine, make it an ISeries (IBM AS/400). Who needs frills, whistles and bells when you have power.

Just looked on a "deal" site. Right now you can get 256mb of PC3200 RAM for $6 after rebate with free shipping.

Hey giggle - where can you buy just one mb of ram? :)

My dream home office set-up...

One laptop with a robust wireless connection.
Balcony, warm sunshine, cool sea-breeze, waves crashing on the shore below, birdsong, mountains off to my left. Glass of orange juice. Beautiful and intelligent accomplice.

That's not too ambitious really, is it? I suppose if I apply myself I could probably manage that before summer 2006.

The wonderful thing about home office setup is that you don't need corporate approval to buy stuff.

I've got a 17: LCD, and bought it not long after they first came out.

I've got a Dell (sorry :) ) 4700c, which is a tiny little machine that's silent as you're going to get without getting a specialty PC.

Aaron Chang print on the wall, scored it from an antique market. It's completely 80's, and reminds me of that time. Tons of pictures and artwork from my kids on the wall.

Window faces onto the bush/forest that is in my backyard.

Wireless keyboard and mouse combo. I didn't go cheap on that. (actually, it just died so I'm looking for a new set)

I'm wired in most places in the house, but I'm going to be putting in wireless shortly. This summer we have a new and large deck, and my wife is now at home working with me. So I'm planning on getting a second laptop plus wireless so we can work on the deck.

Dream home office?

A 17 in screen on a laptop with wireless connection. A recliner in the living room, a deckchair in the garden, and a new double or triple garage with a new master bedroom suite and an office above it. This would give me a view to the mountains. Hardware in the office would include printers etc and probably a grunty desktop with maybe twim 19in LCDs.

My dream "home office" would be in an RV with cellular link.

Good day "in the office" --- cast fishing line into lake, read email, write code and design websites while waiting for bobber to wiggle.

With the internet you can work anywhere. Sometimes I stay at home, sometimes i go to the office sometimes I travel to other countries and work. I just got back from holiday in Sri lanka ( do not go there if you like a fast internet connection, max 128). It is all pretty normal to me now and I guess I do not really appreciate it anymore. All of our office has messenger and skype so I can talk for hours at a time as long as there is a LAN around.

I have my dream office. Wireless router, laptop and the picnic table in the back yard on a sunny day.

Of course, I would be able to work alot more in my dream office if I lived somewhere with better weather.;)
