I went back and forth for a while, thinking the 27" was just too huge in the store. But, I was really hating overlapping windows. Also, my dock was very crowded and the icons had to be very small to fit them. This also made it hard to find what I wanted quickly. The first thing I noticed was that my dock icons are back to normal size, since I have so much more real estate. Plenty of room for multiple browser windows, too. Now that it is sitting on my desk, it doesn't really seem that big. I was already using a 22" before. Anyway, if you are on the fence - Think Big!
