In many, if not most, Seinfeld episodes, a Macintosh computer can be seen in a small room at the back of Jerry's apartment. Did Jerry or any other character ever use this computer on-screen? If not, are there any references in the show to it having been used off-screen?

  • It was pretty rare. I think there was another instance where he says he e-mailed someone or got an e-mail, but I can't place it.

  • Worth noting - Seinfeld aired from 1989 to 1998. Back then computers were significantly less relevant to daily life than they are today. It wasn't a staple of communication for most people like it is now, and "stand up comedian" isn't exactly a tech-oriented job, so it's not too surprising that he rarely used it.

Yes, at least once. Jerry is using his computer in The Stall (Season 5, Episode 12) when Kramer walks in and asks to use the phone in his bedroom. Here's the GIF from the ep (I verified it myself):
