Do monitors measure up?

PC Advisor readers prefer European screen sizes

Last week we ran an online poll asking whether you prefer us to quote screen sizes in both metric and imperial measurements. Nearly 52 percent of voters said yes, while less than 37 percent preferred imperial measurements only.

So PC Advisor's Top 10 charts will soon list screen sizes in both inches and millimetres. Monitor manufacturers still quote screen sizes in inches for some reason and, since a third of you prefer imperial measurements, we'll stick with them elsewhere in the magazine.

Take part in our latest online poll, which you'll find at the bottom left of this page. Are the dotcom doldrums due to immaturity and youth? Have your say.
