Well, how do you fare compared to the Zeitgeist? Chat up your fellow wooters and let us know how lame this poll was or what obvious choices we missed. For example: Was this poll a) STUPID, b) DUMB, c) POINTLESS or d) ALL OF THE ABOVE?

Where's the "No, because nobody cares about me" option?

No new tablet for me. I took the $$ I had saved for a new iPad air & bought one for Pookie instead.
Seeing how happy he was made it worthwhile!
Maybe at income tax refund time it will be my turn...
Congrats to those that got a new tablet / computer / something you really wanted for the Holidays.
Happy holidays to all!!

Bought myself a few tablets. Vitamin Shoppe had some killer deals.

A tablet is a computer.
I didn't need one, I have my trusty Asus G50VT laptop with an X9100 processor at 3.45 GHZ and an SSD, plenty speedy, not dead yet after years of heavy use.
Wish ARM architectured phones/tablet computers would be able to run (emulate an x86 computer) x86 software...albeit slowly

Where's the "No, because even though we could use a new one, money was better spent on other stuff" option.

Hey!, How about an option, that says, "No. I don't exchange gifts at that cost level." Geesh. I'm poor and so are most of my friends. The most expensive gift I gave was a life-size stand-up of David Tennant as Dr. Who I gave my roommate.

So what you're saying is that you gave the best present ever, right?

No- my Bose speaker attacked my MBA and killed the screen and I can't afford to repair/replace it, so I am posting from a very old Dell :-(

Eh, sort of. I got computer upgrades. A new 780Ti to replace my outdated graphics card, a proper sound card and speaker system, a new case/tower and a water cooling system for my CPU. :D

No, I need one but didn't get one and can't afford one. Maybe Woot! will send me one for free? Brigadier of Carolling =)

No, but I bought a lot for my family. We had a WOOT of a time for Christmas.
