I think it would be highly unlikely that the action itself, the mechanical aspect of how one conveys their thoughts, is substantially altered by the technological artefact they are using.

While some research suggests that learning new letters is improved by handwriting (Longcamp, et al., 2008), other research suggests that the quality of creative output is not affected (Wells, 2001). Hartley (2007) reported that method of writing had minimal effect on writing style for experienced writers. Another study (Masterson, 2006) suggested that mode has no impact on spelling.

I would be very interested to know more about the Danish study, and US follow-up, you mentioned. Can you post citations?

Another study I read, but unfortunately deleted before recording citation, reported several studies that provided mixed evidence. If I am remembering correctly, it reported that some studies suggested typed essays were of lower quality than hand-written ones, but others suggested the way they were written differed but no difference in outcome was measured. The author noted that the studies were quite old, though (late 1990's?), so may not reflect current computer use.
