Taking a laptop onto court - frowned upon?

Do you think it would be frowned upon to take a laptop onto the court during a match? You see, I'm not good at doing the analysis of what's happening, why I'm winning, why I'm losing etc. during the match. Often I drive home after a loss and think "jeez, did I even try a single drop shot?". What I have developed is an access database full of tactical options and other match strategies which I can query according to the type of court, opponent, how I'm playing, how he's playing etc. The problem is that msot matches I play are against people I have never met and know nothing about. The only scouting I can do takes place in the 5-10 minutes warm-up. I'm not a good note-taker and have tried notes to myself.

I ask because I have seen pros refering to notes during a match. Would it be cheeky/excessive to consult my access database at changeovers uding my laptop? Or am I within my rights to do as I please and should not be embarassed to be seen to be trying to win so badly....???

What are your thoughts?

It's illegal. No electronic devices can be used or accessed on court during a match.

It'd be no different than calling balls that hit the baseline out.
