    Home: 1600x1200

    Wind: 1024x600

    Work: 1680x1050 + 1280x1024



    Personally I still take into account 800 width into websites, but use a fluid layout. Mostly because people often view web pages in a window, rather than full screen. Also the popularity of netbooks should be taken into account.

    A site I'm currently working on has a min width of 754px and a max width of 1600px, controlled by the CSS file. To force IE compatibility I've included minmax.js.

    There are a few exceptions on pages which have flash elements, such as the video player, where the min-width is set slightly larger.

    If you can I'd make a netbook-friendly version (maybe through a link?). Nothing worse than not being able to view a site properly, and netbooks are definitely on the rise.

    Trust me, i'm well aware that this site isn't the norm. It's just two separate questions. Thanks guys.

    I think i'll use a flexible DIV layout for my site then.

    Its definitely worth accommodating 1024*768, nothing worse than trying to navigate a site that doesn't on a small screen.

    Laptop 1: 1280*800 (+ 1680*1050 usually)
    Laptop 2: 1280*800
    Laptop 3: 1280*800
    Desktop: 1680*1050 + 1280*1024
    HTPC 1 (occasional browsing): 1920*1080
    HTPC 2 (less occasional browsing) 1280*720

    This thread was in general, where polls are disabled for sub-Mod because we had a glut of threads with polls for a while.

    Now it's here OP can add a poll. :thumb:

    I did not know that - I blame Joe. It's always Joe's fault.

    Primary PC: 1680x1050. Going to get another (1680x1050) screen soon.

    Secondary PC: 1680x1050 aswell. The ol' Geforce FX5600 doesn't really cut though...

    at work:
    1680x1050, 1280x800

    At home: 1280*800, 1280*1024, 1680*1050

    Having seen a good bunch of Google Analytics reports, i'd say it's VERY dependant on your target audience.
    If you target is a bunch of no-pc people, 1024*768 is a good measure.
    For IT crowd one can normally assume (in my personal experience) expect 1280*800 at least, maybe 1280*1024.

    Did anyone say that both have to be in landscape mode? Put one in portrait and there you go. A screenshot just for you :p I could be using both in landscape but this setup works better for me and keeps the primary right in front of me. Also portrait uses less space, for example 60cm vs 40cm in my case.

    1400x1050x32bpp 60Hz for the laptop... on a 12" screen. :p
    I think the desktop 17" LCD runs at 1280x1024.

    I'm hoping to get hold of the twin to my desktop monitor and go dual..
