The user interface guidelines, at least at this point, have the  
primary buttons left-aligned under the fields they refer to so users  
have the clearest path to their primary action. This is chiefly based  
on the extensive user research that Luke W's done on button alignment  
with field labels.

(But this doesn't answer the question about the Dashboard—a different  
case altogether. This just for reference...)
