    Just got my HR 15" MBP upgrading from 13" MBP. There is soo much more usable screen real estate its ridiculous. How do you guys optimize this? How is your iTunes set up (Screenshots)? And how about dashboard? I want to make the most out of this extra screen space thanks

    I did the same as always and increased some font sizes here and there.
    Increased fonts in the terminal and itunes. Basically anywhere where I need to read the content all the time.
    I still set the preview app to icons only because I have clutter. My Opera Windows has tab previews left and only a big long address field on the top. Everything else is website space.
    I installed better touch tool and set the Windows 7 like snap to screen feature to my liking. That is very useful.

    In iTunes I still miss the old view with Genre, Artist, Album with the titles below. For some reason they removed this a long time. When I used Windows I was a foobar2000 fan. With my iPhone I was forced to get used to this crappy slow iTunes BS.
    Anyway I have two columns Artist, Genre and the titles on the right. The whole thing is always full screen and text size is big.

    I don't know what else to do. I always prefer focusing on the thing at hand and like everything else in the background. The app I use usually is always full screen. Only finder and terminal is smaller. I was never really used to anything smaller and when I need two things side by side I either use the snap feature or an external screen. Everything else imo just diverts attention for no real benefit.
