I often get asked about what technology I use in my office and how my office desktop is setup, so here is my list of item I use with a photo as well, click on the image to enlarge it if you like.
Apple iMac 27 inch LED (Latest Model) 2.7 Ghz Quad-Core Intel Core i5 Processor, 12 GB RAM, 1 TB Hard Drive, AMD Radeon HD 6770M 512 MB Graphics. Also standard Apple wireless Keyboard & mouse which I love.
2 x ASUS 21 inch LCD Monitors (These are a few years old now and were left over from my old PC Workstation) so not sure of any model numbers but you can get better quality now that these at half the price I am sure!! LOL
You can never have enough screen real estate in my mind, when you are buying and selling domains, developing websites, working on clients projects, talking on Skype etc etc…. Once you have tried it it would be very very difficult to go back to one screen. Perish the thought!
Altec Lansing Speakers (2 x desktop speakers & a sub woofer under the desk) again a few years old now but you can pick up similar quality ones for well under $100 these days.
My second away from home computer is my Apple Macbook Air
Apple Macbook Air 13 inch 1.7 Ghz Dual Core Intel Core i5 Processor, 4 GB RAM, 256 GB Hard Drive, Intel HD Graphics 3000. (this is a great laptop, so dam lite and powers through any work I need it to do but most of all I can get about 7-8 hours of life from the battery compared to max of 2 hours I used to get from my PC Notebook.
iPad (Version 1) WiFi & 3G with 64 GB of storage. Love this little baby and use it way more than the MacBook Air.
Looking forward to the iPad 3 coming out this year as it will be time for an upgrade then.
iPhone 4S, 64 GB storage, I had the iPhone 3GS before upgrading to this one and bypassed the iPhone 4. The iPhone 4s came out on my birthday Oct 14th so I could not say no to that upgrade could I!! LOL
I also have a Wireless Blutooth Headset from Plantronics model 995H which are very good quality sound and very comfortable to wear for hours at a time if you need to. The built in mic is also very good quality.
But the Microphone I use to do all of my podcasts is the Yeti Blue USB Mic which was (and I think still is) the first USB Mic to be THX Certified (THX is a trade name of a high-fidelity audio/visual reproduction standard for movie theaters, screening rooms, home theaters, computer speakers, gaming consoles, and car audio systems.)
This is the best USB Mic I have ever seen or used and has many options of how it cam be used, here is the link to the manufacturers website. http://www.bluemic.com/yeti/
So there you have it, the tools I use every day to run my business from my home office in Perth Australia.
What a great business we are in and what a great time to be running a business on the internet.
Please feel free to let me know what you have as your office or home office setup, I would love to see what others are using.
