Hi,
For notetaking, check out this extensive comparison review (a little old but much is still relevant I think):
http://www.donationc...oteTakers1/index.php
Then check out this mega-thread:
http://www.donationc...dex.php?topic=2362.0
(While reading through it don't forget to take breaks for lunch, sleeping and to have some time off during weekends ;D That is, it is a very long thread...)

I would say that EverNote and OneNote are two of the top candidates.

Standalone todo list programs have been discussed in other threads. Search and revive! I still write my daily todo lists on paper so I am in no position to recommend any software for that.

No current discounts for AM-Notebook. Martin Aignesberger does offer discounts here for his applications on occasion. (Though I believe that you must be a supporting member to take advantage of DonationCoder discount offers).

It depends on what you want. Also a slight warning, recently there was a topic here on Surfulator getting a price hike and UltraRecall no longer being developed so you might need to get your feet wet on those first if you're considering them.

Evernote and OneNote are the overrated ones you'll hear alot so they're good but not the best if you need simpler or more advanced needs. (I know that sounded oxymoronic but both of those apps toe the line but doesn't really cross either areas)

Another popular beta product here is InfoQube. High learning curve though.

Other popular ones are:

Notetaking:
1. Google Notebook
2. Zoho Notebook
3. MindManager (Mindmap)
4. Tiddlywiki
5. Online Wikis (most popular casual one I know is Wetpaint)

To do list:
1. MyLife Organized
2. ThinkingRock
3. OmniOutliner (Mac)
4. Remember the Milk (and it's many plugins for FARR, Gmail, etc.)
5. MonkeyGTD/D3

P.S. Note these are just the popular ones. In no way are they the best for your needs. In fact, I only use two programs in that list I mentioned.

You may also prefer tweaks: (Use at your own risk!)

1. To do list on your desktop:

2.  Commandline:

3. Gmail

I very much like Swift To-Do List: Dextronet.

It's very easy and clear (3-panel layout like email-programs) but has many features.
I use it for notes organization and for my to-do-list as I prefer to have my reference information and tasks all in one place.
It has a very capable database backend: VistaDB.
The author is very responsive.

I tried many todo-list/notetaking programs but like this most.
