You should assess the potential or intended site audience and base  
your assumptions according to the target audience. Users in large  
offices may have larger screens, whilst laptop and home users are  
likely to have smaller resolutions. Whichever you go for, you should  
make the content available to browsers of all sizes, even if layout  
may not be optimally viewed at (for example) smaller screen sizes.

As a guide, these stats are from websites visited which have counters
