In brief: Not certain

The causes of myopia, a condition increasing in frequency according to the latest statistics, are not clear. Much study is underway.
Sustained near reading has be suggested as a possible cause and using a laptop requires near vision just like reading. Until better information is available, do not sell your laptop.
