I spent 2200$ last year on my computer / things. Not including computers built for other people since that doesn't really count.

Are these polls tools for attracting vendors/monetizing this site? I would have subdivided the 1-1000 bracket into <250, 250-1000 if I were you.... You've got the people that spend 1000 and 500 a year in the same bracket as people that spend 0 a year. If this is an attempt at monetizing the site then best of luck too ya!

The polls are primarily to allow members to get a bit of a better understanding of the overall membership. Of course, as mentioned many times, these polls will be inherently skewed.

I originally had the poll broken down as you mentioned, but reverted it back at the last minute. Wrong decision It's still interesting nonetheless.
