I just finished setting up my new iMac (Retina 5K, 27-inch, 2017), 3.4ghz i5, 24 GB RAM, triple-screen work machine!

Sadly had to install parallels and Windows 10 for one client's software to work properly, but it all works fine.

It's huge!

Please share your setups!

Then, there is the portable setup! Aug 22, 2017

For cafe-work, I use the iPad as a dual-screen (via Duet app).

Won't bore you with a photo of mine... Aug 22, 2017

At home: Lenovo T430 + docking station + two 24-inch monitors (landscape + portrait).
On the move: T430

Not very exciting but gets everything done.

Portrait vs Landscape Aug 22, 2017

I had the Dell external monitor to the left portrait but just changed it back to landscape to test it out. Can't tell what I prefer just yet! It's good to have the option to be able to flip it to portrait though, don't you agree!

Setup with portrait screen: https://ibb.co/ea712Q

No floating panes in WFP Aug 22, 2017

Don't you miss the option to make your panes floating on different screens, in WFP?

Floating panes Aug 22, 2017

These never worked for me!

I'd be using them fine for a moment, then they'd snap back to their previous position or would obstruct the editor window!

Mine's bigger than yours Aug 22, 2017

(comment not suitable for a family site)

I hope all your stuff, including those 3 monitors, are not all taking their power from one power point....

Me? I'm happy with a MacMini and one of these

I don't need or want more than 1 display.

Can you use this setting for heavy work and super large files, what are the cons?

Oh yes, two beautiful pieces. But if I am typing long hours I will want my external keyboard and external mouse, because I like to be further away from the screen. It would be OK for short work, recreation browsing or typing an email message.

Coming from one power point, on a solar-power (with mains backup) household.

Drawing too much power from one power point could be a fire risk.

It's good! Try! Aug 22, 2017

Give the Macbook a go. It's quite fast with the SSD and chip speed. My only problem with this machine was the 8 gigs of RAM.
I like to have everything open at once, so would end up slowing it down a bit.

Wordfast worked like a dream. Had no other problems with it!

It IS just a portable setup though, I would rather not use a laptop 24/7.

I did do a 145k word project on it for 45 days, which did my head in but the computer survived!

Just compare the following scenarios:

Scenario 1: PCs needing 90 watts, household needing 50 watts, solar panel providing 120 watts. Thus, 20 watts come from the public grid.

Result: 20 watts of onventional power (coal, gas, nuclear) is consumed.


Scenario 2: PCs needing 50 watts, household needing 50 watts, solar panel providing 120 watts. Thus, 20 watts go to the public grid.

Result: 20 watts of onventional power (coal, gas, nuclear) is saved.
