A geek is not a nerd.
A geek is obsessive over anything and everything: television shows (including Star Wars, Harry Potter and Doctor Who) it can be from comics, the internet and often consoles, pc games or related topics.

The geek will know everything about the given subject but despite this will have few problems socially.

However, in brief, a nerd applies to somebody who is a computer genius or enjoys maths,science or ICT to a large extent

Someone who spends a lot of time on the computer, watching sci-fi, reading fanasty but DOES have an actual life. Not to be confused with a NERD who also does these things but does NOT have a life. Nor to be confused with a DORK, whom both the geeks & the nerds beat up.
Someday Mr.Gates wishes to be a geek instead of a dork posing as a nerd.

An inquisitive individual that handles information about a certain topic whether it is for recreational purposes, a promising career, or both.

Commentary:
A geek typically is intelligent in some manner; and is always interested in a particular topic. Geeks have social skills unlike a nerd, which is similar intellectually, yet is a socially awkward individual. Geeks also tend to be, but are not limited to, nonathletic.

Geeks are wannabe nerds. Geeks are people that are not nesessarily smart. Geeks are jealous of nerds and dress up in the stupidest way possible to seem smart, ruin nerds' reputation, and feed people's steriotype of nerds. The differences between nerds and geeks is that all nerds are smart, but not all geeks are smart and the smartest geek is no smarter than the average joe. Most nerds are stylish, funny, social, well mannered, or some or all of the above. Geeks are dopey. The first geeks were freaks at a freakshow biting heads off of chickens.
Geek 1:I got left back. Look at my suspenders. Don't I look smart?
Geek 2:I failed three classes and barely passed summer school because I cut class to become cool.
Geek 1:That's a new record.
Geek 2:I'm the cooliest! Suspended animation is the cancelation of a cartoon.
Nerd A: Actually, it's when your body cools down to the point where it shuts down for a while, being preserved.
Geeks 1 and 2:Your clothes are ugly!
Nerd A: Are you blind! These are brand clothes and sneakers.
Nerd B and C (which are both popular): 'Sup Nerd A.
