I would never work for a prolonged time with a laptop on my lap. I work (and spend time on the internet) with a keyboard on a table, and the bottom of my screen lifted about 20 cm from the table. And sitting on an office chair, which can tilt foreward, so I dont need the wedge here. Just my 2c.
Easy chair with a lap top on the lap sounds like a very bad idea for the back, and I do not think a wedge pillow could fix it. I can not see how you can avoid hunching in that situation/setup.
