Time for me to replace my current work machine wich is and older iMac with a smaller second monitor. I’m waffling between a couple scenarios.
1) 27″ iMac with additional 24″ monitor.
2) macbook w/ 2 24″ monitors.
The portability of the macbook is appealing but I have a few concerns. For one, I’m not really into dropping that much coin on 2 apple displays. Any recommendations on alternative monitors of decent quality. Also, is cumbersome to drive 2 external displays from a macbook?
I’d just roll with a 27″ iMac (as top of the line as you can afford) and later on down the line get a Macbook Air for travel or meetings.
As a web developer, I find the 27″ iMac to be enough screen real estate for me (which is what I have at the office). At home I’m on a Mac Pro (love me the expandability, though it’s more power than I need) with a 23″ and 22″ monitor. I also have an older Macbook kicking around for when I’m lounging on the couch or traveling.
