Definition:

Not a quick question.  In fact, it is the most long winded statement to ever come out of someone's mouth that just so happens to have a question mark at the end.


Notes:

This most likely is a question like, "I'm looking to buy a new laptop.  Which one should I get?"  Being in IT, I dread this question.  Dread.  It.  I find it easy to create analogies between computers and cars.  For the most part, this works.  I usually respond to the above question with screaming rage in my head...er...I mean.  Look, do you ask your mechanic which car you should buy?  Generally, no.  A computer is a personal choice and I don't mind giving you advice, but I know if I recommend a specific make/model and it doesn't work out for you, guess who's fault it is?  Yeah, mine.  No thanks.
