    Question computer screen res.

    I wanted to ask you guys what is your monitor resolution...am updating and fixing up my webpage...and the would make a big difference to get it right...my labtop, where i work, is 1920X1200 or something 17inch wide, and my desktop computer is 1024X768...crappy old 15inch moniter...and transfering back and forth fixing p the website is a big difference...

    If I know what some of your screen sizes are I could avg. it out better...thanks

    Design for a target resolution of 1024x768. It's the lowest common denominator these days.

    so strange. I guess I'm not really that concerned with keeping my computer up to date (I don't work digitally or play video games) so I'm still quite comfy with my 1024x768, but I was amazed when reading detail visitor reports for my website traffic that the majority of people have much higher. All the same, I like to keep it friendly to everybody, so I stay at 1024x768

    1280x1024 on HPvs17" LCD monitor at the moment. But I generally prefer 1024x768 sizes for just about anything, easier to see and 'compact' =p

    i have 1024x768 aswell. i just get a headache with higher resolutions. i have a good 19" CRT as my main workmonitor and a cheap second hand 17" apple studio display for my palletes. so 1024x768 isnt too cluttered for me.

    No you're not.


    Why not a poll?

    Where are you getting these statistics from? I'd believe the IE5 thing, but 800x600, wouldn't be so sure about that, unless you have some figures from an actual survey to back this up. It sounds suspiciously like you're making up percentages there.

    My laptop is 1680x1050, my desktop PC is 2560x1024 (two 1280x1024 panels).

    Anyway, if this poll is concerned with designing a website for a portfolio or other job-seeking thing, it's worth bearing in mind that your target audience is graphic industry professionals, and I don't know anyone who's a pro that runs anything less that 1024x768. Come to think about it, I don't know anyone who runs 800x600 at all.
