Your Computer's Screen Resolution

Postby hardascole » Fri Sep 15, 2006 1:55 am

What's your computers screen resolution?

According to microsoft reports less than 5% of 1000 users currently user 800.600 screen resolution, most users are using 1024+ screen resolutions since 2002. The standard user uses 1024.768

It took me till 2003 to navagate away from 800.600. Because it was standard install for older operating system, and the first releases of xp as well.

It took me about a month to get use to, and really notice the diffrence and see exactly what I was missing, A HELL OF A LOT OF ROOM!

Yes things get smaller, but after awhile you don't even notice. At first it's a drastic change, and a little unerving, it feels diffrent, looks diffrent, and if you have been in smaller resolutions for as long as I have, then it's just WEIRD.

But worth it in the end, for all the extra work area, and space you have, chat windows, and larger websites, no longer have scroll bars.

Must be nice!

i standardly use 1280.800 But often switch to 1024.768 for website development. My computer won't let me choose any higher or lower screen resolution, it's a laptop. So another reason i need testers.
I can hook it up to the LCD tv in the living room, and it let lets me go higher, but not lower than 1024.768 Sucks!

Can you mail me your monitor?

Funny you ask that. We just switched to 800 by 600. My yahoo mail is a bit smaller print, but that's the only difference.

No idea at all. I can't imagine why I would need a greater resolution but I'm willing to listen as to why.

Your computer resolution can be found in your display properties. right click your desktop then click properties, or use your control panel. go to settings, and that will tell ya...

Hehehe. I have a laptop with a widescreen, that's why my resolution is so high. I like to use the highest resolution available to me, to maximize screen real estate. Anyway, yeah, I think that the most common now is 1024x768.

1680X1050 here. Even on my little 12" PowerBook (now Eric's), I never go below 1024X768.

800X600? Maybe back when I still had my old 486! :P

Made the big jump from an aging (8 year old) CRT to a nice crisp LCD 19" display. :)

I've just upped mine to 1280x960, from 1024 x 268. Hell of an increase in detail.

I have an awesome LCD screen for my PC by the way...

EDIT: Even better, things don't dissappear off the bottom of the screen anymore, the higher res means I can view pages in their entirety, rather than having to scroll.

1440x900. The only downside is I'm forced to use my glasses and feel like an old fuddy-duddy at 28. But I think about the days when my Commodore 64 pushed out only 320x200x8 and smile. Those were the days!

I guess technically I have 2048x768 since I have a dual display monitor set-up.
