    It depends what you mean by a PC? At the end of the day, all of the devices such as smartphones, tablets, laptops, are really "personal computers" in one form or another.

    I can't be without them so I'm pretty much always connected u less I'm sleeping.

    A good 8 to 10 hours a day normally. Tried to cut down but it's not easy.

    Too much time, I'm ashamed to admit how much.
  6. Typical day around 11 - 12 hours, sometimes more like yesterday over 15 hours (work) :(

    I'm permanently plugged into the Matrix. Although if I'm killed in the Matrix, I'm usually still alive in the physical, but with a heightened frustration because I'm no longer in the Matrix.

    Probably around 10 hours a day during work/school week. Which is 6/7 days lol. Sundays I usually sleep so no computing for me.

    Longest spent on a PC straight (Bathroom breaks obviously included and eating at my computer) 40-48 hours at Lan Parties easily. Last night was on it for probably close to 10 hours. On average however is different, maybe 3 hours a day, 6 on weekends if I'm not going anywhere.

    I think asking this question of people who comment on <I>tech blogs</I> gave it a fairly predictable outcome. My answer, btw, is 1-10 hours, leaning towards the latter number most days. I'm not proud of it, but there it is.

    As my pc is my main entertainment center, probably 12 hours...
    I watched tv shows over it.

    8hrs of work + gaming + movies + studies = crap load of time in front of the PC.

    The average is like 10 hors a day, but can range from 4 to 20.

    During the weekday about 12 hours a day probably, 9 of them at work.
    During weekends anywhere from 0 to 12 hours depending on what else is going on...

    I have no idea who these folks are who send out these stats about PC use.

    I spend at least five hours per day on my PC at home because I play allot of driving games online. and that's not including the weekends :) And at least eight hours per day at work.

    Depends whether I have school and/or work or not. On a school day ill spend around 3 hours at home and around 2-3 at school. During the weekend ill spend a good 5-6 hours gaming and surfing the web a day.

    A lot less than I used to. I no longer slide into bed at 4am after a night at the keyboard downloading new programs and playing with new emulators.

    I totally ignore my computer on weekdays, unless I have some research to do. On weekdays however, almost all day. XD

    During working days around 8 hour in office and around 4 hours at home, that makes around 12 hours! In total around 75 hours per week!

    I do college on a computer, I am applying for computer related jobs and when I am home my entertainment hours are spent on the computer. So hmm 10+ hours if I don't go out.

    About 8-10 hours with breaks every 20 mins on weekdays due to my work as a android developer and extra services(rooting , unbrick, upgrades etc ). On weekends about five hours at most..... average around 3hours :D

    I work as a programmer and I use my computer for nearly all my entertainment needs from netflix to warcraft, in the week it's got to be close to 13 or 14 hours a day, weekends usually a lot less.

    Like many others I work with computers, so I spend most of my day with one. I think that my PC time has been reduced somewhat since I'm married with kids, but I probably still spend around 10 hours a day in front on a PC on weekdays.
