    Having just left a fairly prominent advertising agency, I was flirting with the idea of setting up shop on my own, and I thought id throw it out there to the community - what would be/is YOUR design setup?

    Having had access to all sorts of technology that I cant afford to buy off the bat, I thought I had better prioritize.

    here's a tentative 'necessary' list

    drafing table
    light table
    imac i5 w/external monitor (portrait)
    phaser 8560
    external storage
    macbook pro i5

    Is there anything in your studio that you cant live without?

    Mine would be....(mind you I make videogames as a hobby):

    -Huge L desk
    -Mac Pro tower
    -Three 27 inch monitors (Unity, Maya, and Photoshop are screen hogs, as well as XCode and Logic.)
    -Wacom Intuos4 Bluetooth Tablet (have it, love it. No Cintique for me I like seeing "under the pen")
    -Macbook Air
    -Drawer under my LDesk similar to a keyboard tray that holds a full sized keyboard.
    -Time Capsule
    -Large format photo printer
    -All in one scanner copier printer

    I plan on buying this setup when I get back home for good :D
