It's a matter of aesthetics. The code is also more readable, which can save you some time when debugging - that's what typedef was made for.
In either case, I think that "typdefing a pointer to save a few keystrokes" is fundamentally wrong. Unless you have really good architectural reasons for doing that, you should find a better text editor that can automate those "too long to type" situations.
