Heard of a desk my friend? It's a common invention from what I hear. The eDGe is designed to be used in a classroom. Also, unlike ipad, which needs to be propped by with some kind of a stand, the eDGe can be positioned in any way you want, without a stand.
Talking of bulging muscles which can crush coals, too bad you don't have them. I suggest you hit the gym or get yourself a job at one of those coal mines. At a little under 2lb with case/cover on, ipad cannot be held for too long with one hand either.
