Sweating away up any slight incline - people life is short please ride fast.
Once a week sock/underwear run with musette, and once or twice a week loaf of bread still warm frombakery enroute.
Otherwise you are mising out on doing extra kms, group rides and the like on the way in to work!
Keep work stuff at work, if you must work from home, which you should not ever do - then remote in using home computer.
I ride with a 6kg computer several times a week, in a backpack. The advantages of being able to use it where-ever I like (on the train, at the doctor's office - had to help the doc outside the other as their internet was down) and the extra muscle work-out it gives makes it completely worth it. On the hand the risk of being knocked off and having it smashed to pieces is not one to be taken lightly.
