Maybe they are reorganizing but I don't think they are a company for a student who might come to depend on their device and who needs a device they can trust completely. Simple screen service might be weeks to months to impossible by now.

However, the best support I've found has been from user communities and I make my purchase decisions based on that, not anything the company may or may not do in the future. If I didn't think the Edge had a solid user community, I wouldn't have mentioned it.
"Trust" in a company has nothing to do with a device's current functionality. It either satisfies a user's requirements, or it doesn't. If the user is the type of person that places their complete trust in a device, then I think they would be most concerned if they could replace the device if needed. I don't see that being a problem over the next two years or so since Hicham is looking for something to get them through their Masters.
Everything has its pros and cons. Hicham has the links needed to make an informed decision on a device that may meet their four requirements.

I second the suggestion of a full-sized enTourage eDGe, despite the company's difficulties. Check the links Dumas gave you, and search ebay for bargains. The EE has many satisfied owners in the world of academia.

If not the edge (which you'd have to find used because the company is now out of business) you may also consider the Asus Eee Note and the Onyx Boox M90. Both are Wacom pen devices.
The Asus is an 8 inch screen and has been out for a while. Users seem to really like it.
The Onyx M90 is a 10 inch screen is supposed to ship this week. Check out the thread about it on this forum, and you'll see that they are still working out some kinks.
But if note taking is your main criteria, these two devices are worth checking out to see if they meet your needs.

I use a Kindle 2 for books to read in my graduate classes. Most of mybooks don't have a lot it pictures, graphs, etc. Adding notes is easy with the keyboard. I can also export my notes to my computer.

As someone else said above, you might want to take a loot at a SONY PRS950.
