I had a similar experience in my last job. Toward the end of my term
with them, I occasionally took work home. I found that I could turn out
the same type of material in almost half the time at home because my
system is so much better. At work, I used a 286 PC with all DOS programs
for the first 6 mo. This was then upgraded to a 486 SX25 running all
Windows programs. The monitor was a little 14" model (at home, I use a
486 DX50 SCSI system--not quite a pentium, but still relatively good,
with a 19" screen--all the difference in the world!

Add to this the lack of outside distractions so concentration was more
total, and productivity was really superior.
