1-3 - All are correct.
4 - OK except for the last word -- should be "ones."
5 - the word "one-way" needs a hyphen
6 - OK
7 - Remove "The" before "Korean" and the comma after "but" - everything else is fine.

In #1, if he is using the computer, he is "typing" so to speak. If he is working on the computer he may be doing the same thing OR he is fixing some part of the computer.
4. "one" of implies the noun must be plural = one of the cheapest ones. And "round-trip" is hyphenated when used as an adjective.
5. also "one-way " modifying the noun "ticket."
