      Re screen resolutions:

      look at newly redesigned nytimes.com

      their subpages cram a huge amount of horizontal main navigation links that
      seems to be optimised for 1024 resolution.

      I wonder what/if any the effect of 2007 pcs shipping with Vista will be on
      webdesign practices?

      Bottom line i guess is that it really depends on your profitable audience
      profile as you already are evaluating.
