Stonebrae seems to offer newer/better feature homes for the same prices though. It's a tradeoff. Personally I live in Dublin and I am very happy about the community and where the city is heading in the future.
I would still recommend Dublin and Pleasanton since they have a much easier commute and between the two cities there are 3 BART Stations. The weather is much better than Stonebrae. Although schools may not be important to you any more, it is still a good investment in Pleasanton and Dublin since the schools are very good and property values will remain stable or go higher because of that.
Check it out every day - especially early in the mornings. If you can't see anything, it's called ... fog. Oh, and did I mention that cell coverage can be very bad up ion the hills ...?
