    My laptop's native resolution is 1680x1050x32. 60 Hz is the screen refresh rate. The video card is an ATI Mobility Radeon 9000 with 32 megabytes of RAM.
    I am a programmer. My first duty is to God, then to nation, then to employer, then to family, then to friends, then to computer, and finally to myself. I code with dignity, honor, and integrity.

    Code:
    Display Resolution
    
    The current trend is that more and more computers are using a screen size of 1024x768 pixels:
    2004     	Higher 	1024x768 	800x600 	640x480 	Lower
    January     10% 	47% 	           37% 	              1% 	        5%
    
    2003 	  	  	  	  	 
    October     9%          45% 	           40% 	              2% 	        4%
    July 	    8% 	        43% 	           44% 	              2% 	        5%
    April 	    7%          41% 	           46% 	              2% 	        4%
    January     6%      	40% 	           47% 	              2% 	        5%
    
    2002 	   	   	  	  	 
    October      6% 	38% 	           49% 	              2% 	        5%
    
    Web developers be aware: Many users still have only 800x600 display screens.

    I have 1024x768 on mine
    Statistics from my website hits: 1024x768 (48%), 1280x1024 (34%), 800x600 (11%), the rest (7%)

    I run at 800x600 because everything seems really small after that, and I don't have much reason to run at any higher resolution. Except when my icons overflow my desktop...

    And how can anyone run at lower that 640x480!

    Probably cell phones, PDAs, TVs, and other small devices.

    People don't use higher resolutions because of different reasons:

    a) People don't know what it is and how to change it

    b) People don't like their Icons and letters getting so small ( and never use a computer in a way that requires more than one window )

    c) People chose the lowest resolution in a video game because it's the fastest framerate.

    Of those who actually know what it is and how you change it, I don't know anyone below 1280x1024. Everything else is either outdated or otherwise uncompatible hardware ( i.e. notebooks ) or outdated people.
    that's impossible. everyone i meet has 800x600, and when i ask them why, they're all "duh...i like big text"
    it sucks because when you design a site they have to scroll horizontally

    I use 1280x1024 on my 17" TFT's and 800x600 on my 15" CRT.

    What exactly is impossible ? I don't see your statement contradicting my statement. Everyone you meet belongs to category b).

    My website stats are right along with everyone else's... a lot run at 1024x768... but there are still a fair amount running 800x600.

    I run 1280x1024 on my 19" at home.... 1152x864 on my 17" at work.

    Thanks everyone. And special thanks to Yoshi - that's what I wanted.

    Personally, I use 1600x1200, but I do have a 21" monitor. I have a friend who also uses 1600x1200, but with a 15" monitor. He openly admits that he can't read half of what's on the screen
