Poll time: Hardware shopping

— 1:47 AM on October 21, 2002

We've got a new poll to brighten your Monday morning, but before we get into that, let's take a look at the results from last week's poll. When asked how much lead time is appropriate for a paper launch, 38% of voters feel that 1-2 weeks is reasonable, and 27% can stand to wait 2-4 weeks for a product to make its way to store shelves. 25% of voters are a little more impatient, and don't want to hear about a product until they can actually get their hands on one. Bringing up the rear, 8% of voters are prepared to wait 4-6 weeks, 2% can wait 6-8 weeks, and another 2% can stretch their anticipation over more than two months. Patience is a virtue, I guess.

This week, we want to know about your shopping habits for products that you actually can get your hands on:
