The notebook is all about the web. Everything you can do at the terminal, you can do in the notebook. And _vice versa_. Some things, are just more nicely shared via a notebook. See (not Sage, but close enough).

Other good reasons to use notebooks :

  • teaching,
  • making computations in the cloud, see
  • e-research, see
  • the list goes on.

Personally, I always use the terminal for personal or one shot computations, and Sage inside an IPython notebook for collaborating and sharing.
