Having a small office or just a home office doesn’t mean that you can’t splurge a bit on the electronics or gadgets in it. In fact, the more creative you are with the electronics you gather to your office, the more you are to think that the size of your office doesn’t matter.
Small office or otherwise, as far as I can see it, there are two main elements that determine how functional your work space is: the small office design and the gadgets you have.
Here are some of gadget and electronics ideas for your small office.
Gotta have that Kindle Fire!
If you love to read books like I do, then your book collection can take up a lot of space. Now I’m not advocating giving away all your books, but you can certainly cut waaaay back by weeding out the books you don’t care that much about anymore, and purchasing your new books to be read electronically.
The newer Kindle Firehas a higher price than the older one but it comes with a lot of possibilities and additional features, such as the vibrant color touchscreen you won’t see and experience in the regular Kindle.
When you have a Kindle Fire, you have to make sure that you have a cover so as to protect it against any impact or from plain scratching. You’ll need a durable Kindle Fire cover or case for that matter. Think of your Kindle Fire as an investment.
Gotta Get that new Apple Ipad
Here are some of the upgrades to the newer iPad3:
- 2048-by-1536-pixel resolution at 264 pixels per inch (ppi) This is a biggie!
- iSight camera: 5-megapixel with autofocus; tap to focus; face detection in still images; video recording, HD (1080p) up to 30 frames per second with audio; video stabilization
- FaceTime camera with VGA-quality photos and video at up to 30 frames per second
The weight is now 1.44 pounds (652 g) as opposed to 1.33 pounds (601 g)
Laptop or Desktop for your Small Office?
Personally I have both a laptop and a desktop computer. When you have a small office, it doesn’t mean that you have to think small as well. You just have to know what you need and look for alternatives that have reasonable sizes – not necessarily tiny.
For example, if you are more comfortable with a desktop computer, get that one instead. Nowadays, there are LCD / LED monitors and slim CPUs that will surely fit your tiny space. Don’t purchase a laptop just for it’s size… because there are an abundance of super slim desktops on the market today.
On the other hand, if you are a laptop-or-notebook-kind-of-person, then a small space won’t be a problem for you.
If your small office is really short on space.. like maybe you have just a corner of your room, you can just put the laptop on a laptop computer stand, and voila, you have a nice ‘little office.’
Compact Portable Printer for Small Office Space
There are lots of portable printers on the market for your small office space..
These printers are designed to be light and mobile without sacrificing the quality of printing it can produce. And I say, forget the cords and go for an inexpensive wireless printer!
Wireless Headset: The new “in” toy!
Technology has, indeed, made our lives easier in a big way. Yes, you can now talk to a client even if you’re 300 feet away from your office phone. Isn’t that fantastic?
Some of these babies actually have a noise-cancelling microphone that filters out whatever background noises your place may have. A wireless office headset can make your life a whole lot easier.
That’s it folks! I hope you found some new toys for your small office.
