The Lawyerist presents its tech shopping list for new solos.  Its post begins as follows:

Choosing a laptop and selecting a document scanner aren’t covered in law school. To make it easier, here is my “shopping list” for new solos. Just get what you need and get back to focusing on your clients instead of poring over practice management software reviews.Obviously, this does not cover everything you need, but it definitely contains the basics — everything you need to get a new law firm up and running.

Basic HardwareComputer:

  • 13″ Macbook Air or Lenovo ThinkPad X1 Carbon
  • Scanner: Fujitsu ScanSnap iX500
  • Printer: HP LaserJet Pro 400 M401dw
  • Backup drive: Time Capsule 2TB or WD Elements 2TB
