Abstract
Inputting to a notebook computer (NPC) can differ from inputting to a desktop style computer. NPCs are self-contained, so if no peripherals are used, the user works with the keyboard layout and style and location of pointing device provided by the manufacturer. In contrast to standard external keyboards, there are few redundancies provided on an NPC keyboard. Another important difference is keyboard location - because the monitor and keyboard of most NPCs are joined, the user must make a location choice that will potentially compromise body comfort in one or more regions. This paper focuses on some inherent restrictions to inputting on a self-contained NPC.
