I have my site looking pretty good on my monitor but I looked at it on someone's laptop tonight and found some problems. The main problem is my page width. While a page completely covers my monitor, what I saw tonight I need to make everything wider. What is the best size to set the width at?

Thanks!

785 for all to see, 985 for most to see. As a sample VH's main site is only around 750 wide

Okay, mine's set at 860 yet it looked small in the middle of the monitor on the laptop with all kinds of blank space on either side.

Do the pages show differently depending on what browser you're using? For instance, they appear to look fine with Internet Explorer, the laptop was using Safari.

It is not a question of browser, it is a question of monitor dimensions and resolution.
