    I'm quite ashamed to admit it because I use my computer quite a lot and it's not for useful tasks like online classes but the useless ones. I use it to watch youtube, play video games and occasionally do projects. I feel like I should put my computer to better use by utilizing it to write programs or learning a new language on the web. But for now, I'm just going to keep doing what I do best.:D:D:D

    I use my computer a fair deal, although I like to try to balance it out with other hobbies and tasks.

    I totally understand where you are coming from, it sounds a lot like how I used computers in high school! I've tried to be a little bit more productive since then, but I still like to goof off now and again too.

    I think youtube and video games are super fun, and COVID being as stressful as it is, I definitely do not judge you for wanting some fun on the internet!

    Nowadays I don't use my computer as often anymore. Two months ago I probably clocked at 13 hours every day, but now I only use my computer for around an hour or two, and sometimes I don't use it at all. I feel much healthier now that I'm not using my PC as much.

    I recently picked up exercising and I've tried to finally start my fitness journey and that includes cutting my time with gadgets. Overall, I probably spend around eight hours on my computer per week.

    I don't use my computer because my mobile phone became mini computer. Most of the time I spend on my phone.
    I haven't used my laptop for one year at least even I have no anti virus in it.When I turn it on , received so many notifications so I just turn it off.

    It really depends on the day. I am a filmmaker and YouTuber so editing footage is a big part of what I do. So, I usually spend about 3-4 hours on my computer during a single day. I use it mainly once I am finished filming a video and need to edit the footage. In most instances during the day I use my phone for everything else I do such as browsing the internet and/or reading and replying to emails. Since mobile phones can do so much more theses days, computers are not used as much to the general population. In the present time computers are more for work and doing processor intensive jobs such as running a text editor or other creativity software.

    My YouTube channel is Aiden Eylward if you guys are interested in checking it out.

    I would probably give myself a generous estimate of about 5 to 6 hours a day. I do operate on my computer at an alarming rate, but I'd like to calm myself down by believing I use most of that time to code (which I honestly don't).

    I've been recently engaging in more fruitful computer related endeavors rather than wasting my life in front of some screen watching a teen rom-com, unless of course it pays;).

    I am using my computer much more now. School and many of my programs have gone remote because of COVID-19. I also joined other online courses as well to boost up my application for college. However, the downside of all of this is that my eyesight has become so much more worse than it originally was. At the same time, I am answering replying to this forum on my computer in order to earn money for college, so my computer usage just increased.

    I use my computer 24/7. I do a lot of online work on it and keep it running throughout the night, running automatic programs like cryptocurrency mining, auto-surfs and the like. It never complains, and has seen me through rough and easy times.

    I have also earned a lot of money by using my computer, besides surfing through a lot of sites made by people from all over the world.

    I don't have a personal computer but I have my own laptop. I would use it only for educational purposes and the time I really need it. I really don't like sitting all the time and it could even make me forward headed. I don't really feel good even when I just used it for an hour. It makes me dizzy and it hurts my eyes.

    I generally use my computer 1-3 hours everyday. It depends if it's a weekday or not, as I usually use it for school work.

    I use my computer pretty much the whole day, usually about 8-10 hours a day, usually for schoolwork and entertainment. Mobile phones are nice, but I'm used to a computer, and everything I do on a computer is faster and more efficient.

    You are very correct mobile phones are nice but computer is always convineint and easy to use,I use my computer about 5 to 6 hours a day,there are some features you can't fine on mobile device but its available on computer.Thou I know frequent use of computer can cause excess heat which may sometime affect the computer memory so I chose to use mine only 5 to 6 hours a day to keep it in a good state.
