Don't know what your talking about, I got 1024x600 over here,
and I use quite a number of different Layouts,
together with an hacked pertag-patch on dwm 5.2.

monocle - show one Terminal containing a screen with chatclient & mutt.
          / one dillo/lynx/firefox(in that order) while browsing

bstack - for working on the internet
         => one ping(or download) running in a term on top
            (with minimum height), while browsing/writing
            with equally-sized windows below.

tile - watch a compile-process (and its errors) on the left while doing
       anything on the right
       / display a pdf on the left while hacking some TeX for it on the right

grid - for displaying a number of equally relevant pictures/graphs/sourcefiles
       (did display more then 50 pictures with feh this way some days ago)

dwindle - I sometimes use it as something like bstack with one more window
          on the left while programming
          => some reference left and kind of a 'typical' bstack-layout
             on the right - never used it with more then 5 windows though

well, fibonacci is quite the same as dwindle..

And for the tags: I got 10 of them (Super +) 0-9 and use them
heap-stack like. 0 upward is for my normal workflow process
9 downwards is for root-shells and maintaining-tasks
and sometimes i fork and use 6 upward for another process..
