According to a Gilani Research Foundation Survey carried out by Gallup Pakistan, 63% Pakistanis profess to know what a laptop is; 95% of these perceive it to be some type of a computer.
A nationally representative sample of men and women from urban and rural areas across the four provinces was asked “Kindly tell us, do you know what a laptop is?” Responding to this, 63% said yes and 31% said no. 6% chose not to respond. Those who said yes were further asked “What do you think is a laptop- a type of a computer or something else?” Responding to this, 95% said a type of a computer and 5% identified other things.
A comparison between rural and urban districts revealed that more urban residents (72%) are aware of laptops than rural ones (58%). Moreover, the data revealed that more males (66%) than females (58%) are familiar with laptops.
