Imac and external monitor - how to get timeline on the left side!

I am running MC 2020 on a 2017 27' imac with an external monitor. No amount of playing with the dispays setting or swapping the monitors can get me the timeline on the left and bins on the right as the default! Does anyone have any ideas or do I have to manually adjust the workspaces?

That does not at all explain the slower processing...

Re: HP Z400 vs Z820

Looks like you went from a 3.3GHz z400 to a 2.5GHz z820. While the latter has two processors and 12 cores total, many of the tasks in many applications will use just one processor or even one core. In those cases, CPU speed beats core count. Which is clearly shown in your test. Only certain tasks in MC use multiple cores, and AFAIK more so in recent...
