"On the computer" in Spanish

In English, we say "I'm on the computer". It doesn't mean we're actually sitting on top of a computer, it just means we're sitting at the computer, using it! How do you say this in Spanish?

    It'll be
    "Estoy en la computadora"
    meaning that you are using the computer.

    Hope it helps


    Estoy de acuerdo con lo que te indica "paratui", sólo que aquí en España no se utiliza la palabra computadora sino ordenador. Por lo tanto sería "Estoy en el ordenador = I'm on the computer".
    Rara vez utilizamos la expresión "Estoy en el portátil = I'm on laptop"

    In many countries, like Chile, instead "Estoy en la computadora" we say "Estoy en el computador". In Chile sounds like a little bit distant to say "Estoy en la computadora" but it is correct.

    En España se dice "Estoy en el ordenador"

    Nosotros decimos:
    "Estoy en el computador".
    Estoy aquí, frente a mi computador.
