Sort by application in addition to by device. Put tasks that can be done on more than one device in the app context and tasks that require a specific device in the device context. Don't worry about whether a particular thing can go in several places, get it in the first one you think of and move on.

OTOH I have things that I want to do in DEVONThink. I have that installed on all my devices, iPhone, iPad, desktop Mac and MacBook. It doesn't really matter what device I do the task in so I put it in the @Computer DEVONThink context.
And then there are the blended ones. I have a die cut machine connected to my computers. It's on the network so I can contact it from either my laptop or my desktop Mac. However I generally don't do scrapbook stuff except at home so I put the tasks about making specific die cuts in the hierarchy of @Computer Mac - subset Silhouette app. Sure, if I go to a crop and take my machine I'll take my laptop but that's a special event not a normal thing so even though it's possible, I tend to put those in the @Computer Mac context. When that context got too big I sorted them further by adding an app designation. That's why the subset for the app that runs the machine.
