Whether you’re in college, starting a new job, or have a few years in your career, if it involves using a laptop, you’re at risk for developing neck pain and back problems from using it. Many offices use desktops instead of laptops, which sometimes are at eye-level like the big-screen Mac monitors, but ones that aren’t can make you have to bend your neck over just to see the screen.

This is more common with laptops since they’re a lot smaller than desktops.
