More than half of PC users do not feel that they are using their PC to its full potential, according to survey by BMRB International.

The research showed that 53% of the regular PC users surveyed are between 25- and 44-years old. BRMB suggested that these would be mainly work-based. A third of those not using their PC to its full potential fell into this age range.

About a third of those not using the potential of their PCs felt they needed training but were dissuaded by factors such as time constraints and associated costs.

The survey of more than 1,000 people was conducted for PC maker Gateway to coincide with the launch of its online PC training courses and three PC training software packs.

Customers who log on at www.learnatgateway.com and pay £60 will receive a year's access to Gateway's online courses which are divided into eight categories: business courses, database courses, design courses, desktop courses, Net user courses, networking courses, programming courses and Webmaster courses.

Gateway also unveiled a learning library which consists of three CD software packs designed to offer multimedia, interactive training on Microsoft products, including Worksuite 2000 and the SB and professional versions of Office 2000.
