    For the notebook vs desktop, I don't really notice a difference in the displays. With the notebook you can prop anyway you want, and then just attach an external keyboard and mouse while the desktops usually have more flexible displays (but if money is not an option, just get an external monitor as well for the notebook, portability and a good base setup). The other stuff, I don't really know...

    The best position for a monitor is to have it so your eyes are somewhere between the middle and top of the screen -- maybe level with an imaginary line about 25% of the way down from the top. I see lots of people put their monitors lower than that, or use laptops on desks without stands. That low position isn't good for your neck after awhile. Not sure about eyes though. Use what's comfortable.
