Can I take notes during a job interview? (I'm the one applying.)

Hi! Quick question for people who conduct employment interviews. I have a job interview in two days. I would like to take a small notepad with me and jot down the pertinent things discussed that I will need to consider should I be offered the position, and make a move from my current job. I am afraid I will not remember accurately the important aspects, such as salary, benefit details, and other kind of crucial stuff I will need to consider.

Would you think this was rude? Indicative of an unfocused mind? A sign of middle-aged memory failings? I don't interview often, so I suspect I might get a bit nervous, and when my husband and I thrash out a decision later (if I am offered the job), I may not recall exactly the details, which will be frustrating.
It is for an administrative assistant position with a different company, but pretty the same job that I do presently (admin assistant for strata property manager(s). So I will want to consider what that position offers in direct comparison to where I work now. Thank you!
