    Hi, Don't know whether it is the right section to post this question.

    I want to ask what is the standard resolution of laptop and desktop ,
    for laptop, is it 1366*768p
    for desktop, 1920 * 1080 p
    Am I right?

    I am just design a website that I think it is not very good to see with 1366*768p on laptop. So any suggestions about this?

    There is no standard. About the best answer to your question would be an average, but even that isn't much help. Unless you have a responsive design your resolution will be less than ideal on some browsers.

    It is almost like saying Calvin Klein is only going to make pants that fit a guy that is 5' 11" and 180 lbs because that is the average.

    width: 960px is called standard size for any kinds of website design...maximum 1600px or 100% (fluid/responsive)
    height doesn't matter at all.

    There is no standard per se, but rather each panel/monitor has a "Native resolution", and while 1920 x 1080 (HD 1080p) is becoming the standard with new monitors, a massive percentage of people are running older ones, so it varies a lot.

    As stated, responsive/fluid is the best bet, considering the increasing amount of people using mobile, Android, iOS, etc.

    depend on your monitor size and vga graphics hardware.

    I recommend you to make "float" website so it changes size according to screen size. rather then px use %.

    You can't have a standard because we have monitors having different resolutions. There are two ways to adjust your container. Firstly, by CSS. Either you need to write @media queries (google it ), or you need your container's width to be specified as percentage.

    A smarter way in my opinion is to do it by javascript. Jquery makes it too easy. Check $(window).width() on body load and on document resize, and set your container width according to that. Hope it helps..
