OK, I'm going be buying a new laptop to use at school, and I need  a decent organiser/calendar application to record important dates etc.

A friend of mine uses Mozilla Sunbird, which is decent. However, I wouldn't mind using one that can be kept on the desktop (i.e. as a widget in Vista), so that I can keep an eye on my calendar at all times, without having to open the software. I would prefer a "lighter" piece of software, although the laptop will have 4GB of RAM, so it doesn't really matter.

Any suggestions as to what I should use?

Thats exactly what I need... a desktop calendar widget! I usually just type calendar in too google or use the computer calendar which is a hassle.

However, now I'd actually recommend Google Calendar

With Google Calendar, it is easy to keep track of all the important events of your life in one place. You can add events and send invitations effortlessly, share your schedule with friends and family and search for events that you might enjoy.

Google Calendar, previously code-named CL2, is a contact- and time-management web application offered by Google. It allows users to synchronize their Gmail contacts with a web-based calendar.

While users are not required to have a Gmail account, they are required to have a free Google account in order to use the software.

The interface of Google Calendar is similar to desktop calendar applications such as Microsoft Outlook or iCal on Mac OS X. The Ajax-driven interface enables users to view, add and even drag-and-drop events from one date to another without reloading the page. It sports a variety of view modes, such as the weekly, monthly and agenda views.

I did actually find this great Google Calendar Tour.

And then we have this..!
Use google calendar offline!

And the best part?
