I took all my notes by hand and I never had a problem keeping up. Having typed notes can be advantageous when you're trying to find something (Ctrl+F is much quicker than flipping through pages) and also when you're making outlines, but I'm way too easily distracted and if I have a laptop with me I'll simply spend the entire class gchatting and surfing the Internet.
thanks. this is (pathetically) gonna be a tough decision for me to make
I'd just like to add that I took handwritten notes in all my 1L classes and I really think it helped me learn the material well. It's slower and makes you pay more attention, and those are good things when it comes to studying, really.
