One in four Britons says that their computer is “the most irreplaceable thing in their life”, according to new research. A third say they use a PC for more than two hours every evening, even if they’ve also used one throughout their working day. One in seven claimed that their ideal evening now involves surfing the internet while enjoying a glass of wine.
The study of 2,000 users indicates that 14 per cent, however, regard their computer as a fashion accessory. A quarter of respondents say their computer says more about them than their clothes.
