    I guess Red you have too many computers...
    I would have to say the same thing. The three of us in my household each have laptops, tablets (2 Android, one iPad) and iPhones. I guess if you really wanted to get technical. My Cisco Gateway and NAS are also computers, same as the Lantronix print server for iOS devices.

    actually, almost any video reviewer of smartphones you watch will use the term, and have been for years now. it's the phone they use on a daily basis. some people have evolved it to phablets, tablets and larger computers.

    I do not know who has been using that term. It has never been stated in any trade publications that I read all of the time.

    In my 38 years of working on computers, not once has the word "Daily Drivers" been used to describe a computing device. Maybe I am just not looking at those magazines pointed to the younger crowd that games, since I am looking at the ones that deal with the IT side and Car fanatics.

    I've been wondering why people say daily driver lately too. I'm a nerd who builds who my own computers. Windows is an OS, not a driver. I install drivers from my hardware, I install an OS to operate my computer. "Daily driver" is an annoying term like "selfie". ;-)

    Agreed. The term "daily driver" is very common in the Android world, especially for Youtubers and on XDA.
