I've read that the 120/80 is optimum, but I agree with others that some doctors might be okay with a BP that's a little higher than that if there aren't any other health issues and some might want it lower. I'm happy when the upper number on mine is anywhere in the 120s (or lower) and the lower number is less than 80.
I find that the website for the American Heart Association is a good one (heart.org) for information.
