Half a dozen of my colleagues browse at 1600x1200 with browser set to  
maximum window height, and a width of about 1000px. I've seen clients  
using IE at 3/4 screen width on a 1024 monitor. Neither of those  
points should make any difference to design, as optimizing a design  
for one particular screen size and letting it automatically "degrade"  
is perfectly acceptable.
