    I expect most voters will have more than one choice.

    Why is Chromebook separate unlike Macbook or phablet? I alternate between my old desktop, gaming laptop, Chromebook, iPad, and Galaxy Note almost daily.

    Laptop for serious usages, smartphone because I couldn't find any more dumbphones being sold in the local market.

    Netbook is dead, son. Dead.

    Just four desktops.

    I recently gave my laptop to my sister in law.

    laptop, tablet and smartphone. i do have a desktop for work, but i almost never use it because i prefer my laptop instead.

    smartphone is of course necessary for phone stuff, and sometimes i use it for hotspot, navigation, alarm clock, kitchen timer, camera, audiobooks, music, dictionary/translations, and some other stuff.

    tablet is great because it's light and portable. so i use it for videos while traveling or while on the exercise bike at the gym, and also for powerpoint presentations for work - although i prefer to create the actual presentations on my laptop.

    One powerful Win 8 notebook for my work, one Vista notebook as a desktop replacement, one XP notebook on the treadmill, one XP notebook with a different language (for my wife), one netbook rarely used except for printing.

    Desktop only here. I already spend too much time on the internet. I don't need to take it with me.

    Desktop mostly. I like the big monitor. We have a laptop that I sometimes use.

    Regular usage? Smartphone. It's size and portability allows me to use it almost anywhere...literally.

    You can't bring your desktop everywhere. You can't use your laptop while standing in public transport. Tablets are the closest thing in portability but you sure do not want to be caught using it in front of your boss.

    Desktop only. An old guy like me doesn't want too many devices that he can't remember how to use. ;)

    Laptops galore, mostly Thinkpads, both laptops and tablet convertibles. My workspace looks like the inside of the International Space Station. The only desktops I own are vintage collectors items, several Amigas. They are for play. The Thinkpads are for work and I usually have just a couple that get most of the use. The rest are for specialized tasks or backup redundancy. I have two Android devices that I just experiment with at present. One is a smartphone that I just use on wifi and the other is a cheap tablet that is great for youtube but I haven't found much else to do with it.
