Better to use the SD card to reduce the chance of errors.

If the laptop goes into a sleep or idle mode your prints will be interrupted.

To eliminate the SD card shuffle, consider getting a raspberry pi and installing octoprint.

Printing through USB is not recommended as it is prone to stops and starts as the USB goes to sleep on the PC, and or another process has a higher priority than the printer software so takes control of the PC causing USB data to be interrupted.

You are better off using an SD card or Octoprint running on a dedicated Raspberry Pi.

Normal people believe that if it ain’t broke, don’t fix it. Engineers believe that if it ain’t broke, it doesn’t have enough features yet.
