At work my computer is a little bit slow but the monitor is bad having ghost images that makes multiple images. It is a bit annoying that is why I don't use my computer there for too long otherwise it hurts my eyes. The network printers there often get broken or so many agents are using it that there is a long wait.
So for the last 3 weeks I been slowly bringing in my equipments. First I brought in my Macbook Pro which has the Parrallel software so I can run Windows. It is good that I can have everything synced at work and home. Next I brought in a color inkjet printer so I can print color flyers and documents whenever I need to and save trips to the office printer. I left the printer on my desk. The next day everybody in my office had checked it out and was trying to get a similar model. Other agents would stop by all day to check out the printer and computer so keep getting distractions.
The only reason why I would bring my equipments is because the one that I got from at the office don't work. It cost me money to purchase the equipments and it is easy for them to fly out the door.
There are some office owners that I know that forbid agents from bringing in personal equipments because it is very easy to copy confidential information and paperworks and also because it might cause jeolousy among agents if an agent brought a brand new computer and is more productively against other agents that are using old equipments.
I am curious to know if you bring your equipments and what are they? It might give us ideas to be more productive.
