Laptop users tend to write verbatim notes (in lecture setting)

Mueller & Oppenheimer2014 shows that laptops users take verbatim notes in lecture (fixed-time) settings. But may the situation be different in non-lecture setting?

As a personal anecdote, I copied passages verbatim even when taking notes by hand.

On the other hand, copying passages from text documents on computer is even easier.

As of [2020-07-09 Thu] my stance is that taking non-verbatim notes with laptop is hard. It’s much easier to do with pen and paper (even though I know that I should take notes non-verbatim, I still copy/retype passages when taking notes on laptop).

As of [2021-07-31 Sat] my stance is that taking non-verbatim notes with the laptop is possible—just takes discipline and getting used to it.
