I'm a long time follower of the group, but I haven't posted in years. I have a question I was hoping someone in the group could help me out with.
I've just been asked whether there's a downside to moving to 1200px as the minimum desktop/laptop screen resolution we design for.
As far as I can tell, there are two downsides:
What proportion of laptop users? I don't know. I've tried to search for statistics on laptop screen resolutions, without success.
Are there any other segments or gotchas we should keep in mind?
I'd be interested in hearing from interaction designers who have
played extensively with the new One Laptop Per Child UI ("Sugar").
I saw the first public demo of Sugar back in August at AP's UX Week:
but never really got to play with it.
