Team Oatmeal - the quality issue isn't really what software you use, but what card or device you use to digitise the original tape. Odds are you won't be able to plug in a normal digitiser (ISA or PCI card) into a laptop at all because they only have PCMCIA slots. But you can digitise on a desktop machine and then transfer the data, although I'd say you'd be better off on a desktop machine for the whole exercise.
A cheap cleanup without computer hardware investment is playing your original and using rec/pause on the VCR with the new VHS tape you are making. You may get a 1:4 tape volume reduction with accordingly reduced boring sections. I.e. a 1 hr tape down to 15 minutes.
