It’s a good idea although in practice you get much better results when developers buy what they want themselves. Their availability and their focus is defined primarily by how much fun they’re having and how eager they want to see something work. Sure, we could do with a wacom tablet (I don’t think any of us has one), but the problem isn’t money.. I can buy one right now, and with that new budget so can many of our devs. Looking at the other issues you mentioned, most of us have multi-monitor setups (maybe even all of us now..), two of us have retina/hidpi displays, and.. when it comes to Intel and Optimus, I can’t say just yet, it’s something I really want to dive into personally, but I haven’t had the time to do so just yet.
Would have been glad to see some comments on why it was considered....
