17" Mac Book Pro
For years I have used PC's, however last Spring I bought a 17" Mac Book Pro. The only issue I have is the lack of a powerful email program like Outlook and organizational program like One Note. If anyone has recommendations please let me know. Mail in Mac is just not cutting it.

I am now looking at a 13" Mac Book Pro to take to class as I am working on my Masters. In addition I am ready to transition my desktop from a Dell PC to a Mac Pro. Is the Time Machine the easiest way to Network all three together? Any recommendations? Configurations?

Microsoft's Entourage (bundled with Microsoft Office 2008) is the closest thing to Outlook on the Mac. The next version of Office is supposed to actually bundle a port of Outlook.

There's a number of programs that are similar to One Note. Off the top of my head, check out NoteBook and Journaler and OmniOutliner.

I think you mean Time Capsule - and if so, yes that will allow you to network the machines together, but there are plenty of other less expensive wireless routers out there that are equally and more capable. The big reason for going with a Time Capsule would be the automated network backup capability and integration with Time Machine that it has built into it.
