When I get my antennas sorted, I'm in the computer controlled camp 
(which was helpful for testing).  I may be able to solve a few issues 
by taking the Macbook into the field and using it to provide Doppler 
correction for a mobile/portable station.  Computer control will save 
me a couple of arms adjusting VFOs, so I'll be free to point the 
antenna at the right patch of sky. :)
