    Some ergonomic issues with laptops

    I have a laptop i use in case my desktop should be causing problems. I found that if im spending a few hours or more playing games on my laptop, it starts to get really uncomfortable. Is there anything you can do to get better ergonomics if you are using a laptop for gaming?

    Take a break- e.g. go for a walk, do some gardening - explore the real world... my physics teacher years ago said 'look at something green'.

    Laptops aren't the most comfortable for playing games, if you can, consider getting a desktop or at the least a keyboard and mouse.

    I already got a desktop, the laptop is mostly in case my desktop should be causing problems, or if im travelling somewhere and need my laptop.

    How are you playing, is it in your lap? Best to have it on a desk, get a comfortable chair, and use a external keyboard and mouse. Try propping your feet up too.

    Im using the laptop on my desk. So far, it helps a bit to connect a keyboard and a mouse, but its still not really comfortable.

    get yourself a fully adjustable chair you feel completely comfortable with.

    Adjust it to the height of your desk...

    I already got the ergonomics sorted out. Anyway, i went with a 15" laptop, since its just more comfortable. Im also going to be using my desktop for gaming, so the laptop is just in case i should be having problems with my desktop.
