"Laptops are a waste of time and money" by Dr. Warschauer talks about the debate of whether laptops are useful or just time consuming and a waste of money. I believe that in certain situations, laptops can be very helpful but in other situations, pen and paper is the better choice. If someone is working on a long paper a few pages long, they should use a computer because it is more efficient and they won't lose track of their work. However, if your teacher is planning on doing a little assignment, it is better to use pen and paper because you can access it quicker and it would be faster than typing. Dr. Warschauer has a very good point but I still don't belive that they are a waste of money or time but they should be used on occasion to be more efficient.
