For those DM's with Laptops, the "DnD 4e Combat Manager" is a great tool for running a game at the table.
It takes a little prep, but no more than writing everything down on paper or pasting from other resources. You can find the development information here:

http://wiki.rpg.net/index.php/DnD4eCM#Version_1.6.0

and you can download it there in this section: "Current Version Source"

If you want to try it I'm more than willing to give you a tutorial.

Here is a screen print:



Note the players and monsters all listed in order of initiative on the left side.
The monster Kellios is highlighted so his status information is showing in the middle section, which includes lasting effects and current hit points. The right side of the screen displays his Monster entry, as shown in the Compendium.

All of the PC and the Monster data can either be data entered manually. Or even better if you have the Character Builder and Monster Builder you can import the .dnd4e (from the CB) or you can copy and paste the information (from the MB).

This makes everything a lot more organized instead of fumbling through books, or trying to keep track of cards and notebooks.
