no wonder my back hurts

Apparently the increased use of laptops and PDAs like Blackberries have led to a surge in the number of computer users with back and muscle problems, some as young as 12 years old. I’m surprised that laptop manufacturers haven’t come up with a design that separates the screen from the keyboard in such a way that the screen can easily be viewed from a more erect eye-level.
