When we are talking "everyone" I always think about those who may find smaller devices less comfortable or even impossible to use.
You do not have to be impaired in any way to see that even a best laptop computer is in fact not something a physician would recommend for extended use ... let alone smaller devices.
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. Edited 2012-08-28 07:47 UTC
Hh, interesting... could be! Laptops are indeed very flexible as far as the posture goes.
But personally I find laptop displays just too small and positioned too low (too close to the keyboard). It is a strain. And a laptop with a extremely big display or external monitor is not really a laptop anymore. Edited 2012-08-28 07:51 UTC
I actually have a proper set up chair and desk and never have problems.
Any time I even go near a laptop for a while longer than a quick 10 minutes I already experience discomfort.
So I have some doubts about that, but I do wonder if there is some link.
My guess is, it takes away the biggest advantage that a laptop or tablet or even phone has over a desktop computer. which is: mobility. Edited 2012-08-28 13:55 UTC
