Sometimes laptops may only be annoying when the screen angle and the camera can be in conflict, but this can be easily overcome by changing your body posture or room lightning. We prefer to hold the laptops not directly on the materials of the sofas or beds, but to pose them over a support as a book or magazine can be. This to reduce the over heating of the machine and an eventual disturbing sound generated by the CPU fan that can interfere with the chat audio.
