    Hi, I just purchased a new mac mini for website design. I am trying to decide between two monitor setup options and would enjoy hearing your opinions.

    Option 1
    2 x Dell u2412m monitors ($700) (roughly 4.6m pixels)
    Spyder3 Pro ($200, reviews are definitely recommending calibration for he u2412m)

    Option 2
    Apple 27" Thunderbolt Display ($999) (roughly 3.6m pixels)

    So as you can see, it's not a big difference in price. So... given the two options, what would you recommend?

    Two 24" monitors will give you more room to spread things out.

    With the ATD, you can hide the Mac Mini and use the ATD as your hub, plugging everything into it, if you wish.
