    Smile devices/inventions

    Computers are no doubt one of the most sophisticated devices/inventions commonly seen at home.


    I suspect that devices and inventions both work with the above wording and convey the same idea. Correct me if I am wrong? Thanks.

    Re: devices/inventions

    Since its invention the computer has become a more sophisticated device. This device gets more sophisticated on a daily basis. This device bears no resemblance to the original invention.

    Casually speaking they both work, however I would tend to use 'device' over 'invention' in this situation.
