    Screen Resolutions - Poll

    I thought that I would do a poll just to see what people do use from this discussion.

    I listed as many resolutions here that I can find.

    Select all the resolution that you currently use above.

    If not listed please post it.

    I have a Dell Inspiron 6000 and it's supposedly able to get 1920x1200, but the most I can get is 1024x768, so that's what I use :/

    My desktop has a 15" LCD that maxes out at 1024x768. Oddly, my new Dell Inspiron 6000 does 1920x1200.

    I need more desk space, grr.

    1280 X 800..
    On my 12inch wide screen monitor... that's the best I can get
    A student once asked his teacher, "Master, what is enlightenment?"
    The master replied, "When hungry, eat. When tired, sleep. When you need care, come to bobcares...."

    The reason for posting this poll and topice is to determin what the new standard screen resolution for web design.

    You can say that 800 X 600 is no longer the standard. Do you agree?

    Bear in mind who you are polling (most here will be regular computer users or enthusiasts). Were you to poll the section of internet users who logon once a week to check email and browse a few sites or students who logon at the college to research a project you will probably get very different results.

    Very true. But as you most computer users are the on the internet almost all the time and I would say about 5 to 10 percent of all users are not on the internet or even do have the internet.

    Also I work at a college computer lab and 99% of computers in the computer lab are set at 1024 X 768 or higher.

    Umm… can anyone say 1024*768?

    Although my monitor can go higher, I personally see no need. I actually have great problems understanding why anyone would want to have even smaller text and images unless they’re so close to their monitor…

    More desktop space. Sure the text is smaller, but you can fit more objects the monitor.

    When I do web design it is very nice to have more space on my desktop. I also use Microsofts power toy called Virtual Desktop Manager it is like having 4 desktopsystems which allows me to more space with my high resolution.

    Can you link the images that you used for your desktop wallpaper?

    I have my LCD at 1280 X 1024 Resolution and my CRT at 1024 X 768 Resolution.

    I use my LCD for gaming (it's bigger) and my CRT for surfing the internet while waiting to pull in Molten Core/ Black Wing Lair (World of Warcraft)
