    If you had the graphics card to support it, would you rather have three 20" monitors side-by-side or two 24" monitors as your primary desktop workspace?

    3 20" so that you could have 3 x monitor or 1 Apple TV + 2 monitor.

    You could buy 2 monitor and 1 TV / monitor to switch the input with a controller on that one.

    If you were not interested in an Apple TV at your desk I would choose 2 x 24.

    I'd go 2x24, you can always add another one later. 20" is too small personally

    I'll one-up y'all with 3 x 30". Haha, I wish I could. :D

    Thanks for the input. I already have a 24", and there were some real cheap 20" monitors I saw on sale for less than $90 new, so I am debating picking up a couple.

    It would be two 20" + the 24".

    Yay, or nay?

    Depends on screen resolution. If those 20" were full 1920x1080, then the 20's for sure.

    I'm currently running 2 x 27" + 17" (would do 3 x 27" if the MBP supported 3 Thunderbolt Displays).

    Then I'd stick with a 24" for higher resolution. You can always add another later.

    I'd honestly stick to my single 27" thunderbolt display than to have even three 24". It has all the space I need, and switching desktops is super fast and easy in OSX.
