980 vs 960 pixel width layout

The debate over a making your web layout 980 or 960 comes down to a two or four column layout versus a three column layout. The number 980 is easily divisible by 2's and 4's while 960 has the advantage of being divisible by 3.

Read Quantumodo for a full explanation of the advantages of 980.  Apple uses this layout.

Now, if you are doing the math, then the four column layout allows a max width of 245 pixels. Apple, however, wisely scales its images down to 237 pixels to allow for some white space. That comes to a margin of 4 pixels of white space on each image. Since images are next to each other, the margin doubles to 8 pixels.

Notice that I changed the layout on this blog to 980 pixels.
