Only the Americans would do a research project like this, has it not occurred to them that most people, male or female don't actually put a laptop on their lap as it's by definition, uncomfortable, unstable and awkward. So use the nearest flat surface.

Funny, I've just come on to comment on an article in the local Kuwaiti newspaper that quotes about young men being warned etc etc.

Have you noticed that of recent years, fewer manufacturers are calling them 'laptops', they generally have some other name eg 'notebooks', 'sub notebooks' etc etc?

Methinks some marketing type got wind of this some time ago and has neatly changed the terminology. Wouldn't be to avoid litigation would it?

The question I have is 'Who took the temperature measurements?' hmmmm . . .

click here for a more practical option "Flexible necks lets you position it any way you like" also has "Soft, safe nylon blades" which is a very handy safety feature all things considered. Explaining what you're doing with it in a public place is a totally different matter.
