    I might in the future use the BT mouse if i need the whole wireless concept and feel like replacing batteries. The PowerMate I don't really have a need for, I have a dial on my keyboard for volume and a scroll wheel for text pages. I don't have a G5 so no clear side-panel for me. When I was looking at the Griffin site I saw the iBeam. Looks pretty cool. I might also get an iTrip when I can drive :cool:

    They also have a non-BT 'The Mouse', if you look. I just liked the idea of a Appleish mouse with 2 buttons and a scroll wheel.

    BTW, If you post, please try to at least come up with one addation to the list!

    here's one I just got, is pretty nice

    It's "RoadTools Podium BLACK CoolPad for PowerBook" from Other World Computing -

    Nice swiveling stand for the PB - has adjustable height thingys which tilt the computer so you can see the keyboard if your chair is short :)

    It is working great with my 17" PB and should keep the base cooler and scratch free.

    I use a BT500 rather "small" 3 button wireless mouse from radtech - works good but I'm not sure if I like it's small size after using it for about a week. I'll use it a while longer before I make a final decision on whether I need a different one.

    i agree with the griffin powermate. people always go ..."ooh whats it a mouse?", they see it pulsing away with the nice blue glow then i have to give an answer which i think is impossible as i dont exactly know what it is myself! all is can say is that it is very useful and looks very cool!
