Is smartphone Dropbox content stored in the cloud? I'm confused because deleting Dropbox content on my laptop frees up space!! Does that actually make sense? Am I crazy?

Ahem, your stuff is stored in the cloud. But if you upload something from your laptop to dropbox, it stays on your laptop. The cloud 'copy' can then be accessed from other devices.
So, if you upload to dropbox, and then delete the original on your laptop, yes - you free up storage on your laptop.
Make sure you check all dropbox settings so you know what 'delete' means. You can delete just locally or locally and cloud, or just cloud. Depending on settings, app etc...
