    1280x1024 if on laptop/desktop, but what would be really good for me would be some option to improve legibility when accessing from my iPaq pda. I can do a fit to screen but still can't get the post to show up properly (needs lots of sideways scrolling to & fro)

    depends what I'm viewing on - either 1600x1200 maximised, 1280x960 maximised, or 1024x768 maximised. I voted for 1280x960 though, because that is the most regular desktop res I use.

    This Dell D600 laptop has a native resolution of 1400x1050 (it keeps trying to force me to that resolution, at least). I belive it's a 14.1 inch LCD.

    Thanks to everyone who has participated so far - if you haven't already cast your vote, please do so, though I reckon I have enough of a picture to be useful.
