I use a foldable tablet/laptop stand (20€, works fine for lighter 14‘ notebooks, larger might be difficult) and a small external Bluetooth keyboard (60-80€, Lenovo thinkPad style) +mouse. Can be set up/removed within seconds and improves ergonomics by sooooo much. My neck and back are mostly happy.

Thank you all. I have injured my cervical spine because of bad posture and have no choice but to correct my posture with a stand and proper keyboard if I want to save my neck from surgery and my hand from resultant neuropathy. I had no idea bad posture would cost me this dearly. I was afraid the other consultants traveling will laugh at me for using these things, but if many people on the go are using them then that is comforting.

I carry a wireless keyboard when I connect to extra monitors at a client desk. Much nicer than trying to type on laptop and use the screens.

What ergo keyboard fits into a rolling laptop bag for travel?

I use a gaming mechanical keyboard for the comfort and clickity clack responsiveness. Love those old school keyboard feel and not the modern membrane crap on laptops

iClever Wireless https://www.amazon.com/dp/B01JA6HG88/ref=cm_sw_r_cp_tai_56S9Bb8NCQ7QK This one? I wanted something full size when I unfold it.

Hey fishes! Need an opinion. So I work at a consulting firm based out at Canada. Hence the timings are night shifts for the Indian Staff. It was getting a little troublesome when the day light saving started and the staff asked for a little relief in the timings which was denied. Now I and another staff member have resigned and to retain us the company's now ready to move back the timings. I have offers from various places, but seeing the generousity, I'm in a fix. Please suggest. Thanks!

The same boat? Stay safe!
