800x600 -> (there are still a few out there with it)
1024x768 -> (most users using currently)
1152x864 -> (Only seen a few here)
1280x960 ---> (What I am running at now..)
How high do you think it will get? How high CAN it get?
Using 1600X1200 on 21" crt for a while now. There are only couple apps that I resize beyond 1024x768 though. It helps a lot to be able to see more then single window on the screen. The next resolution that I would like would be something like 3200 x 1200.
It really depends on the size of your monitor… and in reality some people don’t want larger monitors than 17” or 19” for personal use. Of course you then have those who have larger screens, but for work purposes which is totally different.
Currently I use 1152x864 because it gives me a lot more space to work with than 1024x768, but it’s still viewable without a magnifying glass unlike 1280x1024.
I’ve actually just tried 1280x960 now, and think I may make the switch. It’s still viewable – although takes a bit of time for my eyes to adjust – but does give me some more space to work with which is nice.
Originally posted by Flumps am I the only one that still uses 800x600 hehe found the others just too small.
It does take a bit of time for your eyes to adjust, although IMO you really should give them a try for a day or two. Don’t switch and then jump into using it right away – especially if it’s a big jump – I’d recommend gradual transition, but then it’s great to work with.
You all have no idea how many times I've been at someones house, or working on a faculty computer at college, and they have the resolution set to 1024x768 on an LCD that supports 1280x1024, or on a 19" monitor. A lot of older people just can't read the text when the resolution is that high.
Desktop PC #1 - 6400x1200
Desktop PC #2 - 4800x1200
Laptop - 1440x900
I feel pretty limited by my laptop and would love to get something with better res. I also am tired of carrying a 10lb laptop, so I might actually sacrifice screen res for something more portable. Not sure yet.
