My ipad gets most of my attention. I always thought it was due to my laziness. It's just easier.

It was like that with me too, that is, as long as my vision was 20/20. This was before the iPhone era, I got my first smartphone in 2004.

Not entirely sure how to feel about this - I can't be the only one out there.
Yep. I have a 27" iMac and an iPad mini, but I still find myself using my iPhone 5 more often than them when I'm at home.

I'm definitely a PC person, whether it's my desktop or my MBP. I own an iPhone and a tablet but I'll always use one of my PCs whenever it's practical to do so; I find the iPhone too small for anything serious, and my tablet is very slow.

Nah, I need a PC for Web browsing more than just a minute or 2 here or there is inconvenient on a phone.

I have to have a PC, so I hit the 27" imac

I do the same. Admittedly out of laziness. If I get the ipad mini 2 eventually I see that as being my go to. Also out of laziness - but with a slightly larger screen.

I feel exactly the same OP, do most of my surfing from the iPhone too. Although my MacBook Air do get some usage too. If I had to do a weekly breakdown on my usage, it would look something like this. 60% iPhone, 39% MacBook Air and 1% iPad.

Yeah when my gf doesn't come over and I have my MacBook Pro sitting right next to me in bed sometimes I find myself picking up my iPhone to browse for some reason.

Had it since launch, so no. I think it's just the convenience factor. I never whip out the laptop unless I really need to. And the iPad is sitting in my bag. It's nice for long periods of reading and watching movies. But everything else is done on my iPhone these days. Weird.

I prefer using my MBP or iMac for internet at home. The iPhone screen is too small to use on a regular basis.

I pretty much exclusively use my iPhone to browse the web when I'm at home lying on the couch. The only time I will use my MBP is if I'm on the couch editing photos and it's easier to just pull up Safari rather than reach for my phone.
