\n I got a new mac at my job. I opted for a Mac Mini, fully upgraded to 4gigs of ram and a single 500gb harddrive. I also got two 20" HD LCD monitors. It's a sweet deal. Here is a side-by-side screen shot of both on the desktop.
Since I use the machine mainly for web-development, I have a slew of browsers installed, including IE8 via Windows 7, Bootcamp and Parallels. I created aliases for each browser and placed them in a stack on the dock for easy access
Another thing I like to do is use the Secret plugin to hide the desktop and then load the desktop via a stack on the dock as well.
