Here's my main things:
Video editing, photo editing, keeping in touch with friends and relatives by emails, information, astronomy, very little browsing.
Oh and spending too much time on Fora (Yes that's the plural of Forum hence the info part.)

Netfix and other media such as hulu.
A little game file modding & playing a few games.
Personal contacts & e-mail, plus a few dirty notes for the girlfriend, it's a thing we do and she likes it.

Email, visiting various forums (computer, motorcycle, firearms, kayaking), news, shopping, financial management (read paying bills), research, photograph editing, and staying in touch with my kids and grand kids who are scattered all over the country. The only games on my computer are the MS games; but I will reinstall Flight Simulator.

Hi guys
Doesn't anybody EARN money from them like "Day Trading" or dealing in Futures on the Stock exchange etc etc.

What about Pro musicians, authors, journalists, pro photographers, fashion designers, architechts etc etc.

Not forgetting Scientists such as Volcanologists taking Laptops into places like Mt Etna to measure toxic gases etc.

Surely there are people out there doing "Real Work" with computers.

Cheers
