The WC was shown in almost all nations worldwide. The Superbowl has a viewership of around 170 million, the WC last had a viewership of more than 600 million.


*Divides 600 million over 30 days* That's 20 million a day on average. The Super Bowl has 170 million for just a few hours.

''Unsurprisingly the competitionâs most-watched match was the final between Spain and the Netherlands, which reached 619.7 million in-home viewers.''

I vote HP, because the computers I've always been using, and hence trusting, are made by HP.

Did you not notice that I requested any further discussion be taken to profiles?

No I didn't, nor do I see the need to, given the large symbols of computer companies that adorn half the page.

Look, Dapro turned over control of the thread to me. I expect you to at least be courteous enough to abide by any guidelines I set, even if you don't agree with them.

Don't blame it on them that you were failing to read my post, especially since they are before the logos.

I would make a comment on your latest statements xeano, but, apparently I'm not allowed according to you.
Can't even reply to statements on the last page of a thread.
Looks like someone has a power craving.

Anyhow; I vote for HP, I've used more computers from them, and they seem like they're more durable.

HP, because they've lasted longer than my Dell products. Yup, I vote for HP.

I follow the rules of the Forum, and tweak them to where I deem them to be applicable. I don't just follow any user laid down rule.


My old schools have always used Dell computers, old, sturdy, slow beasts of burden, hence my dislike of them.

Where did I say that? I simply requested that users do not continue to reply to discussions on previous battles, but rather take the discussion to user profiles if you would like the discussion to continue. I requested this to avoid any confusion which might develop. What is wrong with that, may I ask?

Can't even reply to statements on the last page of a thread.


I didn't say you can't reply to stuff on the last page of the thread. I would say what I meant, but I would just be repeating the last paragraph.

Looks like someone has a power craving.


Are you kidding me? I request one thing, and all of a sudden I have a power craving? ha... Ha... HAHAHAHA!!!

Where did I lay down a rule? I'll say it again, I am merely requesting that you take discussion from previous battles to the profiles to avoid confusion! A simple request, and you guys are getting all upset.

If you must have a rule, I would think this request would be covered by paragraph 11 of the forum rules. The topic changes when I post a new battle, thus any discussion of previous battles would take the thread off topic. Am I not mistaken?

It seems you're the one getting his knickers in a twist.

I would say that the thread topic is merely that of a discussion on brands; if we stuck to the current topic all the time, it would reduce discussion, and discourage unfamiliar users, who usually post about Apple and Microsoft. Of course we should stick to the battle on hand, but if it means that all ongoing discussions on previous topics, even if ongoing must cease immediately, then it's senseless.


Adding on, I like my 3 year old Hp 2309 screen; it's large enough to use as a movie screener, but not too large till it becomes like a plasma tv.

Neither... Toshiba for the win. But, I don't know. Guess I have to go with Dell. My dad's old laptop is Dell. It is about 5 years old with Windows Vista and still booking along well. My school computers were Dell. They were a bit slow but not bad for having literally hundereds of computers hooked up to a server. So Dell.

the final netherlands vs spain was seen by over 700million people in total.

thats 1 match, 1 evening like the superbowl but then 4 times as much spectators

===================

HP wins for me.
Dell costs allot extra for just a average machine.

Both are not that good in my opinion I'd never actually buy any of their products because if I want a pc I'll buy parts and build it myself and if I want a laptop I'd go with someone like acer or asus.
