    just wondering how many mac users out there actually have the dock set to magnify when u roll over it?
    i personally find it annoying, but can't stand hiding the dock.

    Mine magnifies slightly and I have it hidden. Screen retail space is precious on a 15" screen.

    I do hide my dock and have no magnification.

    Need to make an icon magnify temporarily when you have set to no magnification? Simple. Just hold down Control and Shift and move over the dock and its just as if you had the magnification turned on.;)

    I prefer to keep mine hidden, so the magnify comes in handy with mouse over.

    Like a few other posters before me, mine is set to magnify slightly. That seems to work best for me.

    I have a 13.3" MacBook, and only have it magnify slightly, you might want to try it, just so little that it is barely even noticeable. I do not hide my dock, and the magnification is only enough to add a little cool "you can't do this on a PC" effect to show off to my friends.:eek:

    I have a 12" screen, how do you think I feel?;)

    I don't magnify mine, I just make it really big to begin with. Some say I "waste screen space". I don't think it's a waste at all, the dock is pretty much the only thing I use on my desktop anyway, so why not make it big?

    I magnify my dock by a lot and I also hide as well.

    I also make liberal use of the shift key. ;)

    I don't hide my dock and I don't magnify it either.

    Yeah, I have it magnify.

    20" screen, here, so screen real estate is no real issue unless I'm using Final Cut Express, in which I use Do Something When and an AppleScript I got off the internet to hide the dock. Works a charm... except it won't show the dock when Final Cut Quits... grrrr... (even though I told it to)

    Maximum magnification. I'm a recent switcher. I just love all the cool non-windows stuff.:D

    Why does that not surprise me?

    Bet you have smcFanControl going pedal to the metal too ;)

    Can't imagine you doing anything any other way
