Laptops Are A Pain In The Neck... And Back... And Shoulders
from the not-so-good-for-you dept
With more and more people ditching desktop computers for laptops, people are beginning to realize the ergonomic disaster of laptop computers. It's not just the damage done lugging them around (though, that does contribute to it), but there's almost no good ergonomic way to use a laptop computer, because the keyboard is too close to the screen, meaning you're doing damage to some part of your body, no matter how you set up. That means that people in their twenties are having skeletal problems that used to only show up with those in their fifties -- which is a pretty serious problem for many. Some laptop makers (and accessory makers) are finally looking at ways to address the problem, but in the mean time, many of us are stuck hunched over our laptops, waiting for our backs to give out.
