    Do you prefer using a laptop or tablet for typing?

    Do you prefer using a laptop's keyboard or a tablet’s keyboard for typing an article?

    Neither. I like the regular keyboard that came with my MAC. It is more comfortable for me to use.

      adrienne2 mentioned desktop keyboards as well, and I must agree that they are very comfortable for typing. Thanks for answering duffsmom!

    Well since I do not have a tablet, I do not know its keyboard is like.  In comparison to my laptop and desktop, the desktop wins hands down.  I do not like the way you have to hoover your fingers over the keys to type of laptops, and I can imagine being even worst on a tablet just do to the size of a tablet.  I need a regular size keyboard which makes for comfortable typing.

      I must say that a desktops keyboard is also very comfortable and useful for typing!  When I was in school I took typing classes and I never had any issues with using a desktop's keyboard.
      Thank you very much for answering adrienne2.

    I think I'd rather stick with a laptop, reasons being largely unrelated to keyboards. The screen is too small with a tablet, and I'm highly unimpressed with the battery life of some of these tablets. I've played around with one in the past, and I don't take them too seriously. I can only imagine the keyboard attachment one can buy separately would not be much better than tapping on a smartphone's keypad. And the price just makes laptops seem a much more attractive item for writing, really.

      Thanks for your answer Anti-Valentine!  I couldn't agree more with you. Tablets are quite expensive and really not that useful especially for writers. Personally I am not that impressed with tablets and prefer using a normal keyboard for writing.

    Definitely a laptop. I cannot get used to my Kindle and still make mistakes. I got the pen but I still use one hand with it. I felt so awful last week as I was giving feedback on an excellent hub and hit thumb down by mistake. I'm just a little clumsy and losing my dexterity with age. :-(

      Thank you for answering janshares. I also prefer using a laptop when typing, I just cant work on tablet's, the touch screen isn't for me smile. I find a laptop's keyboard much easier to use and certainly time consuming.

    Laptop, always. The tablet is difficult to type with and takes a lot more time, time that could be used for other numerous tasks.

      So true. A normal keyboard is definitely time consuming.

    I prefer both Laptops & normal desktop keyboards. but, certainly not tablets while typing a article.

      I agree. Tablet keyboards aren't for me smile

    For my work at home I mainly use my laptop. This year at college I started getting into the habit of taking notes in class on my Ipad. It was a little strange to get used to at first but by the end of the second semester I was taking notes faster than I could with my pen and notebook.  I used the app Dropbox to put my notes into and they magically appeared on my computer and devices.

    Still nothing beats sitting in the backyard with a pen a notebook smile

    I feel more comfortable typing to a laptop keyboard. I think it's because my fingertips are not small enough to type comfortably on a tablet.
