Default Bold vs. Laptop computer-who wins?

Please Login to Remove!

My test. My wife on our laptop and me on Bold. We picked 5 stocks. The race was who would get closing info. on each stock plus day's chart on each stock. The winner was BOLD!!!! I had all 5 done and she was on the third. Charting on Bold and prices were better organized than HP laptop....

What was the rules? Web based only? Did you have an application to check them? Etc. Not much info for a true comparison here.

It doesn't say anything actually. But we're all very glad you like your Bold.

I beg to differ . If I want fast info. re the above and some other apps. I use my Bold not my HP laptop. There is nothing scientific about this-for 3 months I have been comparing and the BOLd wins out 99% of the time in my situation.

All this "test" says is that your wife isn't that fast on the computer.

tells me how good your HP laptop is. Try it against a gateway 700X and see it you get the same results.
Plus you might get them fast but you still need a magnifying glass to read it and have to scroll sideways all day.

My Bold is very convenient and fast to use one handed. But for doing real work on documents or browsing my Macbook Air is far more usable.

I have been trying to surf for porn on my Bold since september with no luck. The screen is too small to see anything in great detail. The resolution is great but its just too small of a screen. Its nice to be able to take into my bathroom and I can even take it into the shower if I put it into a ziploc. The problem really is the screen size and the fact that it doesnt support all the file formats that most of my favorite porn sites stream with. For now, I will have to stick with my laptop.

It's a completely valid comparison, but for now, the laptop wins.

HAHAHA!!
amazing.
so you didnt say if you used an app on the BB or PC.
If you used google.
did you just have to see it?
record the numbers?
wifi?
competency of the users?

and finally who considers finding the closing number on stocks fun?
