Do you find the iPad tiring to use sitting down?

    I almost always use the iPad while I am laying down on the bed and resting the iPad on the upper part of the stomach. I find it gets tiring holding it in the hands for any length of time.

    When I am at the desk, I almost always use the desktop and sometimes the laptop.

    Don't get me wrong, I am not lazy and would like to think I am quite fit as I exercise regularly, but I suppose if people can play games with game controllers for hours on end, there should be no problems with the iPad. But for me, I just don't find it comfortable using the iPad in any position other than lying down.

    Of course, what I said above will go for any tablet device and not just the iPad.

    Funny you say that I can't get comfortable laying down with it. It works great sitting in my favorite easy chair propped up on one knee then occassionally switching knees. Granted my reading time is not hours on end though.

    I agree with you, even though the iPad is only like 1.5lbs after several minutes it gets tiring holding it up. I just try and move my hand position every now and than

    Laying down is awkward, but I have no problems sitting or standing.

    How do you hold a book when you're reading? Many hardcover books weigh more than the iPad.

    I agree. But most books a lighter than iPad 1. I don't know about iPad 2.

    I have a big belly and bad eye sight. I lay it on the top of my belly , which puts it on an angle and is close enough to see without my readers

    I guess you don't read Tom Clancy or W.E.B. Griffin hardbacks... :D

    Tom Clancy isn't very appealing to a teenager. :)
