I received a i-pad as a work 10-year anniversary present around the first of the year and have been using it for internet. Really like it! Still use my Kindle for reading and occasionally use my phone for internet.

I use my desktop the most, my notebook next. I can access the internet on my phone, but choose not too. I use it for (shock!!) phone calls, taking pictures if I don't have my camera with me, texting, and playing Ruzzle. Been thinking about a tablet, but I really don't need it.... Thought about an Nook or Kindle, but haven't even really looked too much at them yet.

I use my laptop and an iPhone~Purchased by/service pd. by my son-in-law & DD.
I really enjoy using it. It is great when you spend lots of time in the nursing home
and hospital. My dear Mom has been in NH for 7 mos. It takes fantastic pictures.
She enjoys looking at them so much, as she rarely sees lots of people. She
has quite a few visitors but she is more interested in seeing family pics. Some
who live a long distance away.

Since I retired totally a little over a year ago, I only have one computer (desktop) and I ditched the android phone in favor of a basic model that (gasp) just makes phone calls/texts. I prefer to spend my time doing other things rather than being 'connected'.

I prefer to use my desktop to access the internet because it's fastest. I have a Kindle Fire and ASUS tablet, too, and use those for certain applications. I mainly use the Kindle Fire for reading e-books and bought it only because my sister-in-law didn't need a 3rd one for herself and kids. I wanted the tablet for when I travel outside my home. I don't pay for internet access outside of my own home, though, and don't have a smart phone.

I mostly use my home desktop computer. I have what we call a "dumb" phone. I had a flip phone until recently & my friends & family kept txting & I didn't have a txting package, so I needed an upgrade. I don't care to txt all that much, but I did have a txt conversation with one of my sisters yesterday & that was nice -- I don't get to talk to her much -- she's in grad school.

We have a mini-laptop that we take on vacation with us to find neat places to visit & to find restaurants & check their menus.

Keep smiling!!

I basically use my laptop, sometimes a PC. My phone has Internet access but I almost never use it. I wanted a Nexus 7 for my birthday but then I heard the 8 is coming out within the next couple of months so I am waiting for it. I will use it for downloading e-books from the library so that I will always have something to read with me. No more boredom in the waiting room.

my laptop and my android phone. I have a desktop pc but I'd have to actually clean off my desk to get to it . . . ;) I have 2 Kindles - Keyboard & Paperwhite. Hubby offered to get me a Fire instead of the Paperwhite, but I much prefer to use my Kindles just for reading, the screens are much easier on my eyes than backlit screens.

I have a desktop PC that's about 15 years old so it's slow & constantly needs disk cleanup, but it's my favorite way to access the internet. The other is my iPad (the first version), which is good for when I'm on the Hope Bus since my employer bought a laptop for it and then took it back for a part-timer to use. I need internet access in case someone has questions about breast cancer that I can't answer, needs referrals or resources, and when it's quiet on the RV, I can check email. I have an Android but use it sparingly for the internet because the lettering is so small it's hard to see...and if I stretch it, I get frustrated having to move the screen around. So I guess that's the order:

The most - my desktop PC
Second - my iPad
The least - my Android phone
