    I just added up how many hours a day I spend on my Macbook Pro and iMac. Between work and home I can't believe Im staring at a computer screen more hours then I sleep. I think it's around 12 hours a day. 8 hours at work and 4 hours at home. What about you?

    Usually only 2-4 hours a day at home. At school we use MacBooks all the time which adds up to another 4 hours... :eek:

    Too many... I'm at my desk all the time and most of that time is spent on my Mac.

    Too many. My design program requires that everything be typed and submitted online so I spend the whole day on the computer.

    Way too many, even when I am on my desktop, I have my MBP open doing some sort of research, or having conversations on skype. I would say total a day around 8 hours, and more on the weekends. And I am still in high school...:rolleyes:

    I'm a college student so I'm usually on mine for an hour in the morning before heading to my classes for the day, and then from 7-12 in the evening doing homework and research.

    I also work 2 nights a week at a hospital so I'm using it for a good 3-4 hours a shift.

    All in all it averages out to about 6 hours a day.

    i use it for 8-10 hours per day and then keep it on throughout the night running boinc. My MBP is under a full load 24 hours a day, unless I need the processing power for some processor intensive task and I pause boinc.

    12-15 hours a day.

    8 hours at work at least. The rest is for fun/communicating.
