How My Desk is at Jimdo is Set Up
There's a long desk, a chair, I have an external apple monitor (widescreen, maybe 20" or 22"), and I place my MacBook (aluminum) in front of the monitor, so that I can see both screens at once. The external monitor is "above" the laptop display.
I like to do it this way so that I can type on my laptop keyboard and use the trackpad. I still have a regular mouse attached, but I don't like the way it feels -- jerky sometimes and sluggish at others -- not just a problem with that mouse or desk surface, it's been that way with other mice as well.
I find myself having to take a lot of stretch breaks. I'm sure my posture is awful, maybe I can try to adjust my chair for a better height or angle. I found the height adjustment on the right side underneath, but there's another button/tab on the left side which doesn't seem to do anything, at least not that I've been able to figure out yet.
