The use of laptop or notebook computers is widespread and many people use them regularly as part of the work process. Though the definition can no longer use in a single direction, thanks to its ability to store songs, watch movies on, store snaps, files, and many more. But primarily it used for work purposes. It brings a sense of style and status.
The liberty to carry anywhere- unlike a desktop and more importantly to carry your work anywhere! The ability to connect to your mobile or camera and instantaneously exchange data is a boon. Just imagine the advantage of plugging into the internet when you are out of your home or workplace! And now the market flooded with a new and wide range of laptops. Everyone seems to speak about only 3GB, 4GB. They are becoming more and more affordable and are slowly replacing desktops at schools. Colleges, offices, and even homes! But all good things have their flaws too.
There are 2 main categories of risk of laptops:
- The equipment design for portable use and as a result, compromises have had to make. This leads to smaller keyboards and screens, differing pointer devices, or mouse, as well as lack of adjustability. As a result, laptops tend to be uncomfortable in prolonged use.
- The work environment where laptops use tends to be less “user friendly” than the office environment. Areas are often constricted; such as on trains, in cars, at home etc, which does not allow the user to work comfortably for any lengthy period of time.
Where you can use laptops:
The use of a laptop on trains and planes has become more prevalent. Yet, the risks here to the user are usually increased due to a lack of space. In most cases, the laptop will have to position close to the user and the poor posture that results may well lead to the onset of aches and pains in the back, neck, and forearm. In this situation, the laptop should use as little as possible.So by negating the flaws, taking proper precautions while using laptops, and exploiting the positives in the right way, one can enjoy the fruits of this modern marvel.
