Someone, usually a guy, who is highly confused with the very common geek. Nerds are somewhat attractive and intelligent, and are usually great boyfriends because they haven't had popularity soil their good natured aspects. Unlike the geek, who is unattractive and intelligent, nerds are well known and liked and may be considered "popular".
Artie from "Glee" is a nerd because he is sweet and cute and popular among his friends and also very smart. Puck is not a nerd because Puck is not smart and so he is just considered hot. :)

An individual whos computer skills and knowledge of science fiction shows are bolsterd by his lack of sexual prowess and dress sense. They are generally picked on by everyone with a social standing.
Hampered by acne, a breaking voice, glasses so thick they can see through time and less muscle tome than a McChicken nugget the nerd is very rarely seen with a bird or any member of the female persuasion besides their mother.
Will hate jocks and other popular people, resenting them for thier social achievement and the fact that some can be intelligent with out having thier waistband above thier nipples.
"Oh christ, those damn nerds are playing dungeons and dragons in the library again."
"No, I don't want to go to Star Trek convention, it's full of nerds."

Often confused with geek. A nerd is simply a socially inapt and possibly autistic person - usually a young white male. Nerds may or may not have a high IQ, and they tend to prefer being alone or with fellow nerds who they know will not judge them. Even if they're intelligent, nerds are very undisciplined tend to make average grades in high school because they spend their study hall period daydreaming about World of Warcraft and and the Lord of the Rings trading card game (which they play at their mom's house with male friends each Saturday night while their classmates are going on dates). As a result of feeling inadequate they usually never put their intelligence to real use and usually end up working fast food jobs and rarely lose their virginity.

Geeks on the other hand are just intelligent guys with interest in technical knowledge (such as computers) - but are not actually socially inapt and are likely very mature for their age (while nerds are less mature for their age). They may still be made fun of by the extremely prejudiced because they put school and work over partying and fun, but you will likely end up working for them once you're out of high school while they'll be paying more in taxes then you earn in a year.
Nerd speak: Hey joe did you get the new expansion pack for world of warcraft yet? Its so awesome hahahah! I found a glitch in it where i can make the character walk through a wall and get all the way to the end boss in like just 1 hr. normally that takes all day. and when i do that the boss is at level 1 even though hes supposed to be at level 50 if you get to him the normal way so i killed him in one punch because i was at level 10!! lolololo sweeet!!! if you wanna come play with me and ned this saturday i'll show you how to do it. My mom said its okay!

Geek speak: I got accepted to Yale on a full scholarship and I'm heading there this fall. I waited too late to apply for financial aid at Harvard so I guess I'll just have to settle for my safety school. I'm thinking of studying neurosurgery in medical school. It's a toss up between either that or a major in aerospace engineering. I'll decide later.
