MacBook patent reveals an exciting new feature

Repetitive strain injury, tight hip flexors, sore wrists and backs... the list of injuries sustained from a poor desk setup is endless, leaving desk-bound workers searching for an ergonomic solution. The problem is especially pronounced for laptop users, as the flat angle of the keyboard can be one of the main catalysts for aches and pains. 

Apple has heard your cries of pain, and is on the case, filing a patent for a system that would make the MacBook (already one of our favourite laptops for graphic design) more posture-friendly by adding a hinge mechanism to the keyboard, allowing the user to raise it up to an angle. We're breathing a sigh of relief just thinking about it.
