If your one to take your notes on your laptop in order to avoid a clutter of paper, you may be frustrated when you receive handout after handout from your professor.
There is a very low tech way to solve this without really cluttering your book bag.
Grab some duct tape, your laptop, and a vanilla (or manila) folder. Be sure you get a folder that is similar size to your screen
Lay folder on back of your laptop and tape the edges.
And yes I understand how basic this is, but this simple rig has saved me loads of trouble.
