    Newbie question.
    Chasing up research for my PhD - outline on the website - for references
    about the possible efficiency in terms of faster response
    times/preferences for images and text presented to a human subject
    sitting at a traditional desk looking down (i.e as in pre TV era) as
    opposed to current conditions with a computer screen (normally and
    usually badly placed) on top of computer box in the near horizontal
    positio! Has anybody data to confirm say that using laptop computers can
    access information more quickly than someone using a conventional TV
    style monitor?
    Any advice appreciated.
