There are many reasons including:
  - Easier for people with slightly imperfect vision to read
    (I'm talking about obscured or diminished vision which
    can't be corrected by lenses - some diabetics get blod
    clots in the aqueous humor, some people have damaged
    retinas, etc)
  - The lower resolutions can support higher frequencies,
    which are needed for offices with fluorescent lighting
  - You can sit the monitor further away from your eyes, thus
    reducing eye strain

These are reasons that spring to mind right now, I'm sure there are
