I have a MBPr 2.6/8/256 Haswell model. I bought a really nice Dell 24" monitor recently and have a really nice Dell 21.5" as well. I pretty much always dock my MBPr these days using a TwelveSouth Book Arc and use my MBPr as a desktop. I might use my MBPr as a laptop occasionally but no more than 1-2 times a week. Edit: How do I add a photo I dragged and dropped but it didn't work.
