As screens get larger and the amount of text on them increases, it's
likely to get more and more useful to use a mouse... but personally, I
still find the switch-to-mouse operation so clunky on anything except
a Thinkpad that I'll use the keyboard even if it's a bit slower. (Why
are Thinkpads different? Because the mouse, which is excellent, is
right under my fingers, between G/H/B. It's less hassle to move to the
mouse than, say, to hit Backspace, which I do quite a bit while
typing. Effectively, I can touch-type the mouse. A HUGE advantage.)
