We almost all use computers whether it is a smart phone, tablet, lap top or desk top.
Please tell us how much use each gets as a % of a typical day.

If not working it is basically 100% smart phone.
If working it is maybe 30-40% desk top and the rest smart phone.

Phone if I'm not home or on the pot. 90% of Youtube videos and netflix goes to the TV, otherwise PC. Do use the phone a little more since going back to school. I find it funny that you can literally pass a whole class by only using a cell phone.

There is a computer used for music playback, it's on 24/7 but runs headless (no monitor, kb, mouse).
The laptop gets used the most, and will be used to remotely access the music computer.
The cellphone is really just used for phone calls and texting; there are a few apps that are convenient to use on it but it doesn't have cellular data so outside WiFi range it's basically a phone, use the GPS sometimes, that's about it.
All eMail, browsing will be on the laptop.

Hours per day? Hard to say, nothing ever gets shut down, and something might be used at any point in time, or not. There are times when the music server and the laptop are being actively used simultaneously. Broadly speaking there is more time dedicated to music than video or tv.
