Over half of the respondents to this week's seasonal Computer Weekly/Harvey Nash Big Question said they had no plans to do their Christmas shopping online.

Fifty five per cent of IT managers polled said they had no desire to log on to get their Christmas gifts, preferring the hustle and bustle of the high street or in some cases leaving it to partners.

One respondent said, "My wife does all the Christmas shopping and she finds the Internet slow and cumbersome - there is no one at home to take deliveries and I do not trust the delivery logistics of most e-retailers."

Another explained, "The last thing I want to do at home is spend significant time at a PC."

Forty three percent of respondents were more enthusiastic about the prospect of buying e-gifts for loved ones. One of these said, "It beats the hassle of tramping round the shops."
