[time-nuts] Schematic capture, anyone?

What do people use these days for schematic capture (and just possibly PCB 
layout), for low-budget homebrew stuff?  It's been so long since I did this, I 
still own a T-square and a pile of contemporary relics like rules and triangles. 
  I'll get out my pencil sharpener if I have to.  But really, this must be a 
solved problem by now.  For less than $300?  I only need TTL, not striplines or 
any black magic like that.

I'm a Mac shop, but can of course run Windows if need be.  And to make matters 
worse, I prefer ANSI logic symbology over shovels-and-spades (or, really, over 
plain rectangles where you're expected to know what the part number means). 
This comes from exposure to Control Data, who were big on it back in the day.  I 
even used to be on the mailing list of the standards committee.  I suppose that 
all sank without a trace?  If it's still controversial, I apologize in advance 
for trolling.
