Haven't tried stuff via the actual MobileMe web interface ...
Mail is not accessible via the MobileMe web site after converting to iCloud. Of course, the desktop Mail.app is going to work whatever you do (until MobileMe is shuttered next June). After that, .mac/.me mail accounts will not work if you're not using iCloud. If you have other mail accounts that are not .mac/.me, they will continue to work as usual.
iCal will not work on your unconverted laptop if you are using the same Apple ID.
