Hey cabbage one , what you have done was right few years ago when there were not such wide variety of viewports(phones , ipad , laptops and much more ) in market. But nowadays , this is a bad practice. But do you think it's responsive?
It's not responsive . It's doesn't matter whats the viewport is , both col's are bound to have the width of 400px which will look absurd. Instead , if you use precentage unit , the col's will adjust it's size as per viewport width which is responsive.
Percentages are responsive unit , that's why they are used everywhere as unit whereever it's possible .
So , use percentages , be responsive :)
Hope it helps :)
