    I'm currently using Logic Pro 9 on a MacBook Pro and am thinking of moving towards a Mac Mini-based setup. One thing I have been wondering is: Should I get a single 27" display, or rather two 24" displays side by side?

    I'm a bit old school when it comes to logic, I usually use the different window setups to switch between e.g. arrange view and piano roll view. I imagine having two displays would be really nice because it would enable me to have those two windows side by side.

    Any compelling reasons to go with a single 27" instead? Is anything substantially different in the window setup in Logic Pro X vs. Logic Pro 9?

    It depends on the resolution of the 27". If it's 2550x1400, then it's a viable option. But a lot of them are only 1920x1080, which isn't enough, IMO.

    I'd say two Samsung LED backlit 24" monitors is a great option. Currently, I'm running an rMBP, a Thunderbolt display, and a Samsung S24C450.

    I'd save the money and go with the simple two display setup. My university's studio utilizes dual 23" 1080p monitors and the work flow they provide is great!

    I manage with my 27" iMac, but would like a second display for effects etc. Been looking at the Dell Ultrasharps which seem to get good reviews. I have the space, but wouldn't really need another 27" A 24" would be fine.
