    a) Sitting and holding iPad
    b) Lying on your back holding iPad
    c) Lying on front/side with iPad on bed/couch/floor
    d) Sitting at desk with iPad propped up or in dock/stand
    e) Sitting at desk with iPad flat on desk
    f) Other

    I do all except (c).
    My favourite is (d).

    Using the iPad is not as comfortable as using a normal computer with mouse, imo.

    I've never used it at a desk, well unless you count when I hide it at the back of my desk at work and play a movie. I usually lie on my bed or sit on the sofa.

    Voted other but to clarify, because not just one, as it depends where I am. No favorite-if at work, it's on my desk flat. At home, usually I'm seated upright in bed, but sometimes on a chair with iPad in my lap.
    and LOL-as if we didn't expect the missionary comment from someone!

    Snicker. I am going to say ... I had to open the thread to see what the answers would be. I know what I first thought...

    For the record, I usually use my iPad while sitting on the couch/in a chair.
    :D

    If that's what you do to the iPad then I tremble to think of what happens to your beloved macbook pro.

    That book is a physiotherapists wet dream, much like the iPad itself.

    Favourite Position

    If you use your iPad in any position other than reclining on your back you will void your Apple warranty.
    Steve put the gyroscopes and accelerometers in there so he can tell.

    Actually, I think I use most all of those at some time or the other - just depends on where I am. Lying on my back holding the iPad makes it start to feel heavy quickly, so I don't use it too often.
