For those of us who use computers daily it’s the little things that make all the difference.
Supplies and equipment within arm’s reach, a comfortable set-up and even the right applications can make a huge difference in productivity; or lack thereof, if things aren’t just right.
Here are a few ideas to get you started in setting up an efficient computer workplace.
Extend Your Range for Portability
Efficiency is about getting the most out of your time and effort, and WiFi technology allows you to work or play just about anywhere nowadays. But as cool as WiFi is there are still limitations; one of the biggest is the sometimes limited reception area. Howard Computers can remedy that situation quickly and easily with a Netgear WiFi Range Extender.
That means more space for work, less time pushing tech gear around to try and find enough space to sign a document. (Wait…people still actually sign things ON PAPER? Whoa! Who knew?
Home office and computer desks
Not only does an efficient computer set up require the right desk to store needed items and help keep things (relatively) neat and tidy, the flexibility to access everything you need without leaving your chair is critical. Bellacor understands that your time (and your budget) are equally important. That’s why they offer dozens of executive home office desks, including this affordable but elegant sleek, minimalist grey and black U-shaped computer desk.
The Right Operating System
Your computer is only as good as the software installed on it. Try to use an outdated OS, or an incompatible office or productivity package, and you might as well go back to the days of green screens and giant floppies. newegg will keep you working smart with the latest versions of your operating system and the other software security, productivity and creativity program packages you need to get things done the right way — instead of spending hours trying to patch and work-around.
The right computer makes all the difference
I can tell you from personal experience that a slow, out-of-date system is one of; if not the, primary problem with an efficient computer set-up. With so much data coming and going, along with all the applications needed to run our computers nowadays getting the right computer is an absolute necessity.

Applications and Software
If you’re looking for a more efficient computer setup, a Mac might be the answer.
