I think the machine is a good tool because its not like a pencil and a paper. When you use the pen/pencil your hand will get sore straight away. When you use the machine you don’t need to write the whole letter you just need to press the letter. It's like what I am doing now and when you want a eraser you don’t need to rub it out you just need to press back space. The netbook also helps us all learn more.
