What's Your Desktop Resolution?

I'm curious about what desktop resolutions are most popular, and if any have become obsolete. If enough people vote, it could really help wallpaper makers. I allowed multiple responses since some people might have a laptop and desktop or similar. If your resolution isn't listed, please comment. Thanks!

(note: I used an outside poll host for the first poll because the LJ poll wouldn't give me enough options.)

My resolution is 2048 x 1152.
And I use wallpapers on my desktop and on my cellphones (blackberry curve 8320 and HTC HD2).

Thanks for the response, what kind of display do you have? That's a 16:9 ratio, isn't it?

Your welcome. :) I think it is 16:9. I'm not sure. It doesn't say on my computer (that or I'm computer-retarded). :P

Aw, my 1920x1200 is in such a minority... no wonder it's difficult to find walls that size. Interesting poll, though!

My laptop and desktop has a 1280x800 resolution which according to your poll is the most used. P:
