    How close do you have your screen to you on your desk?

    Enough for an 8.5 X 11 sheet or book to sit in front of it with a keyboard. No more, no less.

    My face is plastered to it. Please see my post of Rachel Ray washing her collinder.

    Really, it's about 1 1/2 feet from my face. I feel it is a comfortable lenght to type from, more than anything, and it's only a 17 inch imac.

    3' from my eyes to the screen, comfy for me with a 17" LCD.

    Yes, I did just measure it :eek:

    It's on my lap most of the time. How far is that?

    I sit accross my room (about 10 feet) with my wireless MM and KB. I can't read stuff close up that great cause it hurts my eyes so I go from far away and it works excellent.
