Actually using a laptop while driving is not that bad. Some use it to "datalog" or get information from an aftermarket ECU like might be used in a turbo kit such as I want to put on my Miata. They can also be plugged into the stereo and used to play MP3s. This allows you to keep your whole music collection on the computer hard drive. You do not really have to type while driving, except to hit the space bar or enter key to start a datalog or skip a song on a play list. I would not recommend typing a novel but there are uses that take your eyes off the road less than a typical indash stereo.
