I reccomend you get the pulse smartpen. (Link
It records sound and the notes you write on paper. I love this thing! I bought it being some what skeptical but the little bugger is amazing! You can then download all your notes into your laptop.
As for a laptop that will get you through school. I honestly would recommend the Asus eee 1000HE. That is what I am going through college with and so far it has been able to take anything I threw at it.
I use it as my everyday laptop at this point. It's nice and small, so you aren't lugging a 5-7 pound laptop everywhere..
The battery life is seriously like FOREVER. When I first got it, I would say maybe 5 months ago. It had a eight hour battery charge. It now gets seven hours still very easily. (about 7:40 average).
