Infant Car Seat Vs. Convertible Car Seat

I'm a first-time Mom to be (in April) and have been trying to figure out what type of car seat to buy. I've had several people tell me their children grew out of the infant seat at 6-8 months (either for weight or for height). I'd like some opinions of whether or not an infant seat is absolutely necessary or if I could make due with the convertible seat. For instance, is it really easy to carry the infant seat around-seems like it would be heavy with the baby in it. Also, any tips on favorite brands would be appreciated. Thanks!

Car Trip with Just 1 Year Old

I am taking a 4 hour car trip with my two boys, ages almost 4 and just turned 1. The big boy is easy. He colors and has a little computer and can keep happy just fine. The one year old only wants to walk around carrying things and wants to dismantle all household items. Not very conducive to a car trip. I cant think of what to bring for him. I guess I have some ideas, but none that would last more than 5 minutes. Any ideas would be great.
