Some presenters take it as an insult, if they see you typing on a
computer, assuming that your are not interested in the presentation.
Tablet computer users have the advantage of being less conspicuous. If
the screen on my netbook would open another 45% I could get the same
result by opening it flat on the desk. Unfortunately the double capacity
battery on the Kogan Agora sticks out the back, getting in the way.

rubber keyboard, looks more comfortable to me:

ps: I have found the ANU's newer "Harvard" style theatres to be better
for using gadgets in. These have a raised section in front of the
student fitted with power points. The student can happily type away with
their gadget plugged in, without this being visible from the front of
