    Those images are the reason I pay a chiropractor $55 a week to sort out my back and neck.

    Works great at keeping me pain free but tackling the root of the problem (get a monitor and docking station etc) would probably be much cheaper.

    Use a phone book or two and then a external keyboard and mouse.

    Exactly my thoughts too. Good job in my bedroom I now have a 26" TV mounted to the wall at an angle so that all I have to do is open my eyes and I can view it comfortably.

    Now all I need is either a long VGA cable or to get and Acer Aspire Revo. I think the Revo is the best bet for the HDMI.

    i normally watch my TV in bed with the EEE on my lap, but i open the screen as far back as poss and rest it againsed my legs so its like having a laptop stand (i normally have to rest it on a book though becuase it tries to eat the sheets and we all know that will = fire XD

    According to the second pic, lying in bed is the best way - no red dots!

    I usually just pin the notebook under my chin, so the screen is at eye level, and tap out what I want with my tongue.
    Peoples comments are so funny! Haha
