We also have a Members Only thread on the topic: Using PCs, laptops: what's your set up? ******* I'm putting this in lifestyle management right now, but I wondered whether it was more general. The issue though is the problem of not being able to sit upright at a desk for any length of time, and therefore using a pc or laptop from bed, and how the former would be rigged up if anyone around here has done that. I need a gaming pc or laptop for reasons I won't bore you with. It won't be really expensive and my family are footing most of the bill anyway. The problem is a pc technically is way better than a laptop when it comes to upgrades, but I stopped using my old pc when I could no longer sit at a desk. That was when I had anaemia so bad, I was one point short of needing a blood transfusion or something. But I was weakened, and got into the habit of using a laptop after that, while sitting on top the bed, pillows behind me. I've seen at least one person with a pc rigged up for bed use, because they had some illness or disability, but other than that it seems laptops are the machine of choice. I have been putting off getting a new machine for ages, and it's getting to the stage the current one will have to be replaced. I'd prefer a pc, but the problem is not the pc tower, or even the keyboard and mouse so much, it's the stability of the monitor when using the machine from bed. Or whether the whole thing would just be too messy/cluttered. Also, the keyboard might be too high if I put it on one of those hospital type tables. Higher spec laptops cost a lot though, and you have to replace the whole thing if they go kaput, whereas you can replace the tower alone with a pc.
