    lol...yes, it's really not a standard resolution, I kinda like it though. On my desktop I use 800 x 600, so it's quite a difference when I go from one to the other .

    Here's a link inline with this topic I thought would be worth dropping in:

    If the eBay auction I recently won goes according to plan, I'll be able to use whatever resolution feels most comfortable! It's a 21" Dell branded monitor. That means I'll have to pass along this 17" I'm using on to my sister and her family...in exchange for her 15". Hmmm....can anyone say "dual monitor setup"!? That way I'll be able to work/surf/etc on a high resolution, but still easily check my sites, etc. on an 800x600 monitor. I can't wait!

    I want a TFT personally, this 17" is huge as it is + the colour's off.

    It's suprises me a little that most pages look perfect at 1280x960 and presumably the most popular resolution for the masses; 800x600 many sites look very bad, even unuseable.

    but still easily check my sites.... on an 800x600 monitor.
    FYI: There is this neat little Browser Resolutions Utility. Sizes your browser from webTV to full screen.....
