Screen tilt angle annoyance on MacBook Pro

I've run into a design limitation with the MacBook Pro that I curiously hadn't heard mentioned in my extensive (read: obsessive) research before taking the plunge and buying one: The screen doesn't tilt back enough. I type a lot with my notebook on my lap (in case of the MacBook Pro, due to the crazy heat, I put it on its second skin cover, not directly on my jeans) and not being able to tilt the screen back is a major ergonomic annoyance. Also, this is going to be a problem when presenting at tilted podiums.

This thread on MacNN forums discusses the issue further.
