Now that I've actually taken exams both with a laptop and without I'll share my experience.
With a laptop - good to horrible, my laptop crashed 5 mins. into my Civ Pro Exam, and I'll never take an exam on a laptop again, call me paranoid, but I have more faith in my left hand. On the other, uh, hand, I type faster than I write and it's much easier to edit with a laptop.
By hand - If allowed I use a pencil to help with editing, and you must outline your answer, with a laptop like I said you can edit, enough in fact, that you might still pass if you don't outline your answer.
