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.

@work: 800x600 (15")
@home: 1024x768 (17")

but still easily check my sites.... on an 800x600 monitor.
FYI: There is this neat little Browser Resolutions Utility (http://download.com.com/3000-2068-10106608.html?tag=lst-0-2). Sizes your browser from webTV to full screen.....

My brother-in-law has one of those. You realize it weighs over 80 pounds right?

I have a 18" NEC 1810X LCD at work and whats really cool is that it rotates! So I can have it long ways up and down while in word or something and the normal way other times.

1024x768 on a 13"/33cm monitor. My desk (and my wallet) is too narrow to accomodate anything larger.

Just to update this thread - the link mentioned earlier in this thread :

http://www.wondermill.com/sitelaunch/sl_stats.htm

said that 800 x 600 was the most common - does anyone think that is still true ?

Of course not. It's at least 7 years behind the times.

1024x768... glad to see I'm in the majority. But if my eyes get any worse, this may have to change!

I'm at 1440 by 900. I can't stand 1024 by 768, mainly because it was designed for 15" screens.

Exactly - well spotted ! ! ! So what are the current resolutions being used ?

Peut-etre it's time for a trip to the opticians, bazz?

It seems that the usual suspects to go for, are 1024 x 768 - 1280 x 1024 - 800 x 600

Do any of you code specifically, so that if anyone using any of the above visits your website, your website would still look good ?

It isn't that large a text on my screen, surely?

That ain't gonna be much use because it 'adjusts' with the screen resolution but it should be comparable with your own res/size. Does it appear larger than your text?

2560x1024 on my main computer but the browser window is more like 1050x920. Perhaps it is time for a new poll with new options, lol.

Wow have times changed...

Usually, "native" on a 17" is 1152 by 864. I wouldn't be able to see without a photograph, bass, but it's comparable to me setting my 19" to 1152 by 864.

Thanks for the replies on this - it's incredible the way things have chnaged !

Anyone know what would be the default res, for the pc's that Dell, HP, et al ship out ?

I got a 19" screen and I browse at 1440x900 because this is the maximum my graphics card has to offer.

Would I have got more I would use it.

1280x1024 - wide screen monitor, I use windows sidebar to fill the width.

I personally code within about a 840 pixel width, but I would be willing to go up to 940. Any more is a bit irritating to me, in my book, because I don't browse with a full-screen window (just wastes space) and I hate having to resize just for one site.
