I find my laptop most useful for profs that use slide presentations and move along quickly.  Most profs will post their slides, but I find typing out the notes myself works much better than staring at a slide because it keeps me engaged.  It's also very nice when a prof sneeks in a quick comment like "attend yourselves to note 50 on page 454" and then moves on without batting an eye.

Also, for outlining I love my laptop.  However, I can't say that I love using any "automatic" outlining software.  I usually do my outlines without any "help" from the horrors of Word's crappy outlining feature.   I usually create one huge comprehensive outline, one medium sized outline, and finally a mini-outline. 

Definitely get one as light as you can afford with tons of battery time.  Wireless is a must.  I work on my research papers with my junk piled around me on a table as opposed to squeezing into a spot in the computer lab.
