I think this depends a lot on your eyes.  I feel fortunate to have
eyes that allow me to read a monitor practically from the other side
of the room, so I can sit erect without craning my neck.  It might be
worth looking into better lenses (or a lower monitor resolution) if
you find yourself frequently leaning toward the monitor.  As I recall
when we worked together, Nick, your 17" monitor was often set to
3400x2100 or something :^)
