Hi,

For Console view : https://help.salesforce.com/HTViewHelpDoc?id=console2_about.htm&language=en_US

Page Layout:  In org there is account tab when you click on Account tab then it will show you list of account records. When click on any record then it will show you record details. like name of account and other fields this screen called Page layout and it is a detail layout of account, And when you click on edit button then you will see that all fields are editable, this screen called edit page layout.

Mini Layout : When we are on detail page layout there are type of fields showing their values, if there is any look up or any master detail field and you will take mouse (mouse hover) on value of this field it will show you detail of that record in mini layout box. that is called Mini layout page.

Search Layout : When you try to find any record by global search and result will found then it will show you some fields of that record so that fields determine which you have selected in search layout. and you can select any button also there
