Actually, I stumbled once on some research seriously exploring, from a medical standpoint, the ergonomics of computer usage - and the laptop turned out to be fabulous, enabling a position with very little strain in extended usage...

...which was nothing like people often use computers, on a ~desk - basically, it was a half-lying position with gently bent knees, all supported by pillows or some such.
