    For a long time I had it tiny with a bit of magnification on the left, now I have it on the bottom right (horizontal) at a small size without magnification.

    bottom, auto-hidden, slight magnification. I need the extra screen space on my MBP, disabling auto-hide just doesn't seem like a good option.

    Well as for me it's

    bottom
    no auto hide
    2D view
    slight magnification

    I was thinking to put auto-hide but sometimes I feel like it lags for a couple of seconds

    Bottom,
    No Auto-Hide except when I use Final Cut Express, where screen real-estate matters,
    Magnification about 2x bigger than my dock which is reasonably small,
    3d,
    4 stacks.

    You're not going to sell this information to 3rd parties are you!? :p

    thanks for your replies. In fact i see many screenshots of OS X desktop with the dock on the side and i was wondering if this was really common.

    Obviously its not...

    (...and no i wont share this with 3rd parties. :) )

    I have it at the bottom with slight magnification and auto-hide since it's a 12.1" screen. When I get my iMac after exams I doubt I'll auto-hide it.

    I find myself changing.

    Visually I like it on the bottom, the 3d look is good, but its just not practical there with the widescreen aspect ratio..

    Thats, why i generally have it on the left, as it makes more sense taking up a little of my 1440 pixels, rather than the 900 i have vertically.

    - no auto hide, and a little magnification (it makes it that little bit more stylish lol)


    BTW, how do people have the dock position on the bottom, but to the side? ive seen it in a few "post your ________" threads..

    1. After a bit of experiment I have found comfort in leaving it at the bottom.

    2. turned off auto-hide just because i like to see what is running and the lack of actual full screen outside of Opera makes it kinda pointless.

    3. i turned magnification off as it tends to mess with the functionality of stacks.

    I leave it at the bottom, because I have a wide screen, and can fit more applications in my Dock that way.

    My preference for magnification is off. However, auto-hide's the weirdest one of the bunch. On my PowerPC iMac running Tiger, I set it to auto-hide because of some Classic apps I run that don't respect the Dock. On my MBP running Leopard though, I have auto-hide turned off.
