    I use two computers for web viewing, these have resolutions of 1680 x 1050 and 1920 x 1080, however I build my site to be viewed by 1024 x 768. This allows most people to vie with having to scroll across.

    1600 x 1200 for me (home and office), but I generally try to design sites to look at their best at standard resolution, which is currently 1280 x 1024, and work OK at the other common resolutions: 1024 x 768, and various wide screen things, which can make the designer's life very difficult because they are so shallow.

    I use several machines to get on the web with, with varying resolutions. Currently 1280x800 (notebook). I think notebooks are getting used more and more and not many people have the need for ultra-high resolutions. Thus you may get an above average high resolution from your poll here.

    I would suggest you do investigations on your target audience which, I guess, might not be the group of photo enthousiasts available here on AP.

    Depends what PC I'm sitting at. 1680x1050 & 1440x900 (on main PC with dual monitors) and 1280x800 on notebook. Or 1280x1024 on the spare PC or the Kids PC.

    I got the best screen I could get for my 17" Dell laptop (desktop replacement - its too heavy and too hot to use on the lap, but that's another rant). Anyway, The only problem is that the screen's native res is 1900x1200 which makes text on websites etc absolutely minuscule.

    You could use ctrl-scroll for making the text larger....I know I had to teach my wife how to do that with her needing reading glasses.

    As for native resolution I use 1680x1050 as well....seems to work well for me.

    Depending on your skill level with designing websites I would recommend looking at using CSS and design it for a minimum res of 1024x768. If designed properly with CSS it will look good on any resolution from 1024x768, and will also be compatible for normal aspect or widescreen resolutions.

    It all really depends on your target market as to what minimum resolution to design for, but in the past I have designed websites aimed towards businesses so they need the website as compatible as possible due to having a large target market.

    This problem is why my sites are designed in Flash using fullscreen & a horizontal design. Then no matter what people's reso is, the site will display exactly as I design it & won't resize at all & throw things off-whack

    Clockwise around the room.

    PC 1 1440 x 900

    PC 2 1024 x 768 + 1440 x 900

    PC3 1280 x 1024 + 1024 x 768

    No wonder I have square eyes.

    According to my personal website stats the majority use 1280x1024 so I've built it around a basis a little lower of 1024 wide. Personally I use something in the higher end gap on your poll and 1280 at work.
    Cheers,

    Both my laptops run at 1440 x 900 and my desktop at 1680 x 1050. The desktop actually won't go any higher than that. Probably got something to do with the monitor.
