Totally easy. I did a semester with a Newton and it was fantastic. I
kept better more acurate notes and I didn't tune out during class. I
started this semester with notebooks and it's pretty bad. I decided
after midterms to switch back to the Newt.

I found the best system for notes was the outline in the built in notes
app. Of course there may be a third party app. and if there is someone
please tell me. The only serious disadvantage is the loss of graphics.
It's hard to make a chart, picture, or flowchart with a Newt. I started
on a 130 like you and moved to a 2100 pretty quickly. Note taking on
the 2100 is definately easier. Might I also recomend getting a couple
memory cards; one to backup and the other to store your notes.
