We tend to focus a bit more on the consumer side of the PC hardware business, but there's a whole other world out therethat of serious work machines unhindered by glossy finishes, cheesy product names, or components with cyborg frogs on them: the world of enterprise-class IT hardware.
A decent portion of our readers operates in that part of the PC universe—that we know for a fact. What we know less about are the specifics. Are many TR gerbils responsible for their companies' entire IT infrastructures, for instance? Who makes the servers, workstations, and laptops that dominate their workplaces? And do TR's IT gerbils snag some of the fastest industrial matte-finished heavy machinery for use in their own systems back at home?
To satisfy our curiosity, we've put together a big, multi-question poll that covers some of the key areas above. We're hoping TR readers who use enterprise-class hardware at work or at home—or even those who simply follow that industry—can indulge us. This poll won't be featured on our front page, so scroll down to start casting your votes.
