A bigger monitor spells another problem; it means that I have to be more careful on designing.
I can set my resolution at either 1024×768 or 1280×1024 pixels.
1024×768 pixels allows me to see everything clearer since they look bigger; however, in design term, I have to plan for users with monitor size 16’ or smaller because the font size may be readable for my screen but not for them.
1280×1024 pixels gives me the power to view more items at one go; however, I must make sure to design projects based on the 1024×768 or lower resolution so that users do not have to scroll horizontally. Some users may even be using 800×600 pixels resolution.
