Since you have told about written works, it can be good and a little bad too. By using laptops like Chromebook, that is connected to online clouds can reduce data redundancy and also prevent data loss. It is a smart way to share written data among friends and colleagues. Tons of copies, rough pages and notes can be reduced to a small 'notebook' [here notebook= laptop]. This will be a leap forward to save trees, by saving paper on a large scale.
But on the same time, it is not the best, as the art of writing can't be completely replaced. Children below 5 can't use lappies as they need to practice a lot on alphabets. Using laptops for every written purpose will also mark our dependencies on technology. And constant exposure to laptop screen is also not good for health.
There are two different answers, you can chose any of them :-)
