We really are completely opposite lol. Almost all the gear I use is my own rather than work supplied. Work only provides a laptop/dock setup, and supplies 12" laptops. I work from remote offices etc, so 12" laptop on the road doesn't cut it. Request for 15" laptop denied. Ebay never knocks me back though... In the office, laptop + dock was a hindrance and years back I had all these folding pcs sitting around unused.. so one of those became my work pc. I've kept it up to date since then simply because I like the convenience of having a machine that does everything I need it to without needing to worry that my company is allergic to spending money on useful things. I fully understand people being heavily against the idea of spending their own money on stuff for work, but personally I don't mind spending that money when it makes at least 40hrs of each and every week better for me.
