I was coming back from a client last week and I saw quite a few laptops on the train. Typically my commute is less than an hour, so its not worth it for me to whip out the laptop, because as soon as I take it out, its time to get off the train. It would be a different story if I was going regional (more than a couple of hours) then it wouldn’t be an issue.
For now, I’ll stick to my usual mode of operation.
Let me know are you more likely to use the laptop while commuting or waiting until you get to your destination?
