Does creativity flow better with a pen and paper?

Pen and paper or laptop? Does it matter?

A recent article suggests that writing longhand is better for creative writing.

Really? Is it not more a matter of personal choice and what works best for the
individual writer?
I always used to write in notebooks first then I got my beloved Mac.
It's made my life so much easier and it's also much faster.
That said I still have notebooks all over the place which I use constantly.
I guess I make notes which I can then use when I'm writing my first drafts
but also as and when an idea pops up.
I will confess to being a bit of a fetishist when it comes to notebooks, I just love them.
Recently I have talked to and interviewed many fellow authors about this. It's really
quite interesting to see how it differs form one writer to the next. We all our
little quirks and personal preferences.
One thing though every writer I know has notebooks of course, that's almost a guarantee.
So what about you, pen & paper or toys? as one commentator put it.
