With a war raging right now between the proponents and detractors of the PC as a gaming platform, we thought we'd poll our trusty readers to see where they stand on the issue. The subject of our latest poll is simple: do you play games on your PC at all? We don't mean killing time at work by playing Solitaire, but our question nonetheless spans both casual and serious games, from N and The Sims to Crysis and World of Warcraft. Feel free to vote either below or on our front page.
In our previous poll, we asked for your definition of the "sweet spot" for laptop display sizes. The results clearly favor 15-15.4" displays, which garnered a whopping 38% of the vote. The next most popular size was 17" with 15% of votes, followed by 14.1", 13.3", and 12.1". From these numbers, we can probably conclude that TR readers like their laptops big and favor desktop replacements over sub-notebooks. Only 21% of voters think the sweet spot lies in the 12-13.3" area, compared to 68% for the 14-19"+ crowd.
