Why did you hate Notebook? That might guide us to what you're looking for.

If you like outlining, there's OmniOutliner. Or Taskpaper, which if you're handy with text allows you to tag stuff

Word also has a pretty good notetaking function, and of course it integrates with the word processor. It also does audio, which I found extremely handy for notetaking. Sort of like having a Livescribe pen, only typing. The audio benefits from having a real microphone.

Why the hate for Evernote AND Circus Ponies Notebook...

I guess it depends on what you want and need to do...

For me, Evernote is awesome! I'm teaching my students to use it on their iPads.

As has been mentioned try the Omni groups offerings... You could also take a look at Devon Think...

I used to use evernote but once I started taking alot of notes it was hard finding them. I use semester planner which manages all my notes, assignments etc for a semester but there are plenty of apps out there that you can use to take notes. Pick one you love and stay with it.

Take a look at DEVONthink or it's less-expensive sibling, DEVONnote.

Sometimes I use Preview to take notes for PDF documents. The good thing is that the notes stick to the place on the PDF you want it to be. It is also possible to highlight words or sentences.
