memory module (1.25-inch or shorter). For
more information on installing memory, look in
Mac Help, available in the Help menu.
32
. If the keyboard doesn’t pop up, it may be

Work more comfortably
Use a light touch when typing or using the trackpad and keep your hands
and fingers relaxed. Avoid rolling your thumbs under your palms.
Keyboard and trackpad
When you use the keyboard and trackpad, your shoulders should be
relaxed. Your upper arm and forearm should form an angle that is
slightly greater than a right angle, with your wrist and hand in roughly
a straight line.

34
Not this
Not this
Change hand positions often to avoid fatigue. Some computer users may
develop discomfort in their hands, wrists, or arms after intensive work
without breaks. If you begin to develop chronic pain or discomfort in your
hands, wrists, or arms, consult a qualified health specialist.
Chair
External mouse
An adjustable chair that provides firm, comfortable support is best. Adjust
the height of the chair so your thighs are horizontal and your feet flat on
the floor. The back of the chair should support your lower back (lumbar
region). Follow the manufacturer’s instructions for adjusting the backrest
to fit your body properly.
If you use an external mouse, position the mouse at the same height as
your keyboard and within a comfortable reach.
You may have to raise your chair so your forearms and hands are at the
proper angle to the keyboard. If this makes it impossible to rest your feet
flat on the floor, you can use a footrest with adjustable height and tilt to
make up for any gap between the floor and your feet. Or you can lower
the desktop to eliminate the need for a footrest. Another option is to use
a desk with a keyboard tray that’s lower than the regular work surface.
Built-in display
Adjust the angle of the display to minimize glare and reflections from
overhead lights and windows.
You can adjust the brightness of the screen when you take the computer
from one work location to another, if the lighting in your work area
changes.
