Please provide the maximum resolution your monitor can provide to help a comparative study. Thank you.

Viewsonic A90 crt run at 1280x1024@75hz (max 1600x1200). Fits my eyes and won't tax the monitor.

I voted 800x600 but it's really 800x480. I'm on an Eee PC.

This isn't the best way to get a random sampling. This will attract people who have something worth boasting about (22" widescreen here)

Like half the posters here (apparently), my laptop has a max resolution of 1280x800.

Actually, my Thinkpad T20's max resolution is 1024x768, my 560's max resolution is 800x600, and my I-INC AG191D's max resolution is 1900x1200 (but I don't use it at that level; none of the computers I hook it up to could handle it, nor could my eyes.)

Dell E173FP, 1280 x 1024. More than adequate. It will do 1600 x 1200.

I agree that a poll here is a poor way to get an unbiased, random sample.

Desktop: 1920 x 1200
Laptop: 1680 x 1050

Desktop: 1920 by 1200 24"
Laptop: 1440 by 900 15"

I voted for my desktop's resolution. I also have them at max resolution because non-native resolution can look rather bad on LCDs.

1280x960. I don't use it because I have bad vision. I use 1024x768 and that seems to be a good compromise between readability and size.

my desktop runs at 1280x1024 [19inch tft screen], my laptop runs at 1280x800 [17 inch widescreen].

==

If all goes well I should be at 1920x1200 in two weeks [new computer and 26 inch screen are ordered].

19200 x 12000 :D

Just kidding.

I can't really vote, because my laptop is 1280x800, my old desktop is 1440x900 and if I use my tv as a monitor it's 1680x1050

My Thinkpad T61p has a 1920x1200 WUXGA panel ^_^

Though my desktop uses a 20" Samsung 1680x1050 WSXGA+ Display

Max is 1600x1200 (good old Viewsonic PF790 19" CRT), but that's just way too tiny for my poor eyes to see. So I use 1280x960.

Desktop's 1280x1024, laptops are 1024x768. I do a lot of art, so my needs are actually better met by a fullscreen monitor.

Main Laptop: 1280*800 (800 is too small, I don't like it)
Second Laptop: 1600*1200
Desktop: 1600*1200

The larger the resolution the better, my brothers Laptop which is far better than either of mine has 1920*1200 on a 17 inch screen and I can only say that it is a really really nice screen size and resolution combination.

2 screens, one has max. of 2048x1536, other is 1440x900. I use 1280x960 on the first one so I can actually read it :D

A truly good sampling, perhaps from a school or a large group of people.

If I knew the GUI dev's had such poor resolution, I'd have been a bit more apprehensive :lol:

No one can vote twice. Therefore, hopefully the proliteriates of lower resolutions will return to balance the score after everyone with hi-res monitors have had their say.

Is the question 'monitor' (singular) or 'monitors' (plural)?
Singular 1650x1050, plural 3360x1050
