It isn't just the JAWS commands that bother me about
laptops. It's also the height and distance of the keys. On an
external keyboard the height and distance are closer to the keys on a
typewriter, and since I've been typing since sixth grade, it makes a big
difference to me.

I avoid the laptop keyboard like the plague and use an
external keyboard on my laptop all the time. I refuse to learn two
sets of JAWS commands.
FYI, if your laptop keyboard has a number pad, and the
applications/menu key [since some don't] then it is essentially the same as
a desktop keyboard. All of my current students have laptops, but all
of them also have full-sized keyboards with number pads, so the JAWS
settings defaulted to desktop keyboard. It took me a while to figure
that out at first, way back when. I couldn't understand why those
*%$#* laptop keystrokes simply refused to work on the laptops I was dealing
with. Then the light went on/the penny dropped.
