    note taking software that imports powerpoint

    I have seen many threads on other sites on note taking software or apps that are similar to MS OneNote. Many of them are wonderful if you are taking notes from someone speaking. My professor emails us her powerpoint presentations before class. I'm looking for an app that - like Onenote - will import the slides and allow me to record notes on them as we cover ea slide. I don't want to print 100's of pages of stuff for each time I go to class.

    I have tried open office's presentation software but haven't seen an easy way to take notes on the slides.

    Google offers a good presentation app with google docs but is too slow on my 512k net book.

    Any other suggestions?

    I can be found either 40 miles west of Chicago, in Chicago, or in a galaxy far, far away.
    Open Office Presentation is the OO PowerPoint equivalent. It can handle most PPT presentations (that don't use ActiveX controls) and should let you take notes associated with specific slides just fine.
    Sometimes, real fast is almost as good as real time.
    Just remember, Semper Gumbi - always be flexible!
