How much better is standing than sitting when using computer?

I had read a study recently that said many of our health problems are caused by our sitting for so many hours during the day rather than standing.
But is it merely standing or the act of moving around that improves health?
Specifically, I spend a good deal of time using my computer, a desktop model. Would it make sense to use some sort of standing arrangement with a laptop so I do not sit, or is there little to be gained by such a move/
thanks in advance
