    Hi Guys.

    Could I please ask where do people keep their docks (bottom, left or right).

    Please pick one as it is a part of a bigger project my group and I are researching at University about the use of Macs :)

    Thanks a lot :)

    On the MacBook Pro it's on the left.

    On the iMac's it's on the right.

    Bottom. I grew up with Windows and would feel weird without something on the bottom of the screen.

    Bottom.

    For many years it was on the left, then over the course of a couple of OS X releases a) the vertical Dock became uglier, and b) the horizontal Dock became prettier.

    I'd much rather have the user-configurable Apple Menu back, though...

    It's on the left for me. That way I could see the full page of the word document when I work. Plus it's way better to view websites.

    Right - just like NeXTStep. Which is where Mac OS X came from anyway.

    On the left, auto-hide

    Much easier to get to the dock without it getting in the way of what I am doing on screen

    Mine is set on the left side, and offset toward the bottom corner.

    On the first week I used on the left. Then I tought: "ok, let's try on the bottom like everyone". So, my mac has 3 weeks and I use at the bottom, very tiny, and not hidden.
