Our labs are old computers, with 800x600 resolution as maximum possible.
It should quite similar to Telecentros (Brazil) (a big user base of 
GNOME) where they use Pentium class machines with limited resources
using LTP.

In this kind of countries, the common monitor is 14" normally used
in 800x600.

Also, my mom has a 17" monitor, but she uses 800x600 because is the
resolution that she can read comfortable.
