Last week, we asked you what is the best brand of laptop What Is The Best Laptop Brand? [Poll] What Is The Best Laptop Brand? [Poll] Read More . 1180 of you responded. Apple was at the top of the list with 273 votes which made up 23% of the total votes. As some of you have pointed out in the comments, this does not mean Apple has the biggest share of fans. If we were to combine the PC votes together they would add up to 77%. Yes, Apple makes pretty equipment that some people love but it is horribly expensive.

Dell came in second place with 17% with Levono/IBM and HP/Compaq close behind with 14% and 13% respectively. Very interesting, guys! And I learned that Toshiba has a very loyal following. It seems that people that have gone with them seem to say they are very well built and require little hardware servicing! You can view the complete poll results after the jump.

    It always looks like a compulsion to me. I do not find posting every thought I have, or hearing every thought you have to be interesting. My computer and message board forums provide enough access for me.

    Once I figured all that Twitter could do, I was addicted. So much so, that I've gone from 325lbs. to 225lbs. inless than a year! Of course, eating better helped, but Twitter kept my mind off of snacks.

    So sad to see the comments above regarding Twitter. It is fast becoming the single largest pool of potential clients in history. (To all the Realtors who feel this way) How many times have I heard Realtors say that "Door Knocking", "Cold Calling:, joining clubs and organizations like Kiwanis, Rotary, ect..was a "Waste of time", yet it was "networking" that allowed all the best Realtors to grow their Sphere of Influence and become successful. Twitter is nothing more than the "World Largest Social Club". You can easily and quickly expand your sphere with minimal effort (Compared to the above examples). Anytime something is "hard" people will look for an excuse why not to do it. That's fine, but stop trashing something you have no knowledge of, or refuse to give a real effort into. Those who use it effectively will not miss you, it just makes them look better! Next time you go to a Listing appointment and lose to the "Cool" Realtor who is actively engaged in Social Media, then you can talk...or maybe you want to then! :-)

    Stay Blogging My Friends!

      I am a software guy, not CEO, realtor or into social advertising. I never mentioned that it is not for realtors. Twitter is definitely for social media and communication, till you are the one advertising or looking for clients, not when you are the client or the one advertised to.

      When you ask me how did twitter affect my life. I will say, it is just a bother for me. Don't go on saying you will lose to a cool realtor. I am not a realtor. Don't compare apples and oranges.

      In terms of productivity(personal), it's got no impact on my life, except wasting a lot more time. That's coz I got better means of gaining knowledge than twitter.

    I read it somewhere that someone took facebook status updates and made a whole website out of it. I completely agree.

    I think Twitter is pretty useful but sometimes it can also be a pain. I love it because I like to take note of what I've been up to at certain times (after all, it is a micro-BLOGGING system, right?). Sometimes though I think it's not so good because a lot of spammers and really strange accounts are on there. A good breeding ground for potential stalkers, lol. It's a love/hate relationship I guess

    Twitter = Big Fat Greek Waste of Time

      It's a huge waste of time. But was fun when I started using it.
      My main idea of using it was to get some interesting news on technology. It was fun in the beginning. But doesn't serve purpose as much. I was bogged down by the stupid status messages, even from best of the people. I hardly found a single status useful among the scores that came, that too that too interesting in most cases.
      Of course, one might argue (a blogger or some of such sorts) that they found out what they should write about next. That could be done via other means too.
      Doesn't serve lot of the purposes I wanted to use it for. Same goes with the facebook. FB's even worse, more than required application posts on wall.
