I have a 13” Macbook Pro with a 22” external monitor. I spend most weekends at home with my parents, while my monitor is set up in my student’s dorm. This means I end up working on a 13” quite regularly and find myself getting used to alt+cmd, as well as focussing on doing one task at a time ;)

Granted, I havn’t done much development lately (as university courses have shifted mainly to mathematical foundations for the time being), but I find myself even connecting my 22” less and less when it’s sitting right in front of me!

One computer with two monitors…for over 12 years.

For development, this is enough, but I know someone who does video editing and uses 3 computers and 4 monitors at the same time!

I would say without a doubt that 3 monitors is a good start as with most program i use take up 2 screens, which leaves me with the other one to have word document web or other things.

At home i only have 2 monitor and i find often this is not enough, i would like 4monitors but my graphic card only supports 3

I’ve used dual monitors on my desktop at work before and I miss it, but right now I’m personally just using my 15” i7 MBP.. using Cmd+Tab and exposé hot corner. But I’m looking forward to getting at least one external monitor for home, if not an entire home system with 2 monitors… and that will be with my GR profits, so just waiting on that :P

In the office iMac 22’’ i5 quad core 2.7 for developing and a monster i7 Windows rig for music while I code / facebook / browsing the web for fun.

When on the run, I use a MBP 15’’ Early 2011 i7 2.0 Ghz – used to be I connected it to a 24’’ monitor and develop when at the office which would have been ideal. BUT performance seemed a little slugish with my workflow ( 30 google chrome tabs, 10 firefox tabs, 2 netbeans editors ( one for PHP, one for JS ), dreamweaver, photoshop ) . That’s why I gotten the iMac with the i5 which does a job better ( at least it seems ) , but then again – the fork last version inconvinience, I have lost changes countless times because I forgot to continue work from the latest version I saved on the iMac / MBP.

The iMac’s 1920×1080 is enough for me right now but my dream is either the 27’’ iMac or… A MBP with Retina + U2713HM but again I fear that the 2.4GHz quad-core Intel Core i7 Turbo Boost up to 3.4GHz will not handle 2880×1800 ( own resolution ) + another 2880×1400 or something of the monitor :stress:

F1 runs the following script:

wmctrl -a "Chromium" ;  sleep 0.1 ; xte "key F5"

“wmctrl” makes “Chromium” window active, “xte” sends F5 keypress (reload)

If I can’t find a way I’ll hard-code it with windows api, even if I have to get the positions of the buttons manually, it’s gonna be worth it.

I have i7 Beast with Dual Screens 24 inch. Also 16 inch laptop. I am planning to upgrade to 3 screens and considering touch screens. Does anyone have experiences with touch screens for development/design?
