Left damnit! Left!
Authored by: derekhed on Nov 10, '04 01:38:46PM

On a laptop, keeping the dock on either side works best since the screen proportions are different than your normal monitor. Think letterbox. And since the Finder places downloaded files, etc., on the right side of the Desktop (if you have 'keep arranged' set), you don't want your dock to cover them or pop up when you're trying to open a file. Works for me.

(The title is in honor of my brother who yelled those words to me as I was driving, all the while viciously pointing to the right.)

The problem I ran into with placing the dock on the sides (with a 15" PB) was microdock: the dock became so crowded with extra-small icons that it was difficult to distinguish them, or to avoid overshooting with drag-and-drop, etc. Resulted in noticeably slower mousing — and hence lower productivity! So I went back to the dock at the bottom, auto-hidden. YMMV.
