    BT keyboard
    iCurve
    More RAM
    Speakers (soundsticks or creatures or kilpsh pro-media)
    Apple cinema display

    Whats on your list?

    I'm probably near alone but... I don't want anything... then again my iMac is maxed out (except HD) and while my Powerbook can hold more RAM I don't really use it anyway so it's not worth it...

    I guess maybe some speakers for my iMac Core Duo but I don't know of any good digital speakers and the ones in the iMac work fine...

    Probably just a new, bigger external hard drive, so I can start using my Mini as a media center as well. That's all!

    I really have everything I need for my iBook G4@800 at the moment

    More RAM (got 640MB) and a bigger HD (got 60GB) would be nice, but I cannot justify upgrading either, the cost (of upgrading a two and a half years old laptop) greatly exceeds the gain in efficiency and the value of the machine.

    I could maybe use a new workhorse for the heavier part of work (nothing complements an iBook 12" like an iMac 20" ;)), but most of the time I just work with text files and the occasional light Photoshop work, so the iBook is really quite sufficient... :)

    Now give me a project involving some heavy Photoshop/3D/Flash/Video and I have to get me the ultimate iBook accessory... :D

    What do I want for my Mac? Simple. A New one ;) Not really for a speed increase - more so for a smaller screen, FR, and integrated iSight. And Windows Bootablly.

    Oh and I do hope the new MacBooks use that rumored Magnetic latch. I thoroughly hate the tibook latch.

    I'd love a latch that doesn't bend the screen when it's latched down. My mac laptops all develop a little curve on the top corners of the screens because of it.

    me too.. which one do you want? I'm not sure yet if I should shell out the money for the Intuos3 or if I should get the cheaper Graphire4.. actually, I don't really need the mouse that comes with the Intuos...

    1GB RAM for my iBook
    Mac mini 1.66GHz Core Duo with 1GB RAM & 120GB HDD
    500GB external HDD
    23" Apple Cinema Display (would accept a 20")
    Klipsch 2.1 speakers
    iPod 30GB
    iPod nano 4GB
    Solid Gold Toilet
    A stunningly attractive and uninhibited live-in maid
    A 6x increase in my DVD library
    17" MacBook Pro
    Apple's 2006, 2007 and 2008 release schedule (can you imagine how much that would be worth???)
    More of this $$$$$$$$$$, less bills from crap telecommunications companies who can't get broadband to someone on a major thoroughfare in the 9th largest city in the country.

    To add onto my PB:
    iCurve-type stand to help things stay cool
    External display, at least 23" to make it worth my while
    iSight, especially a new one with an IR sensor and remote
    BT keyboard to use with my PB in clamshell mode and external display
    I suppose some speakers like the Creatures, if I feel like rocking out with my sweet external display

    And in 5 years, fiber-optic connections like the one in my avatar (40Gb/s)

    Live-in maids are going fairly cheap now. Especially since Rev B has just been released. This nice thing is they now come with a built-in English module, so you don't have to add any software updates.
    Just me sure to max out the intelligent quota - you don't want her wearing your new toilet as an earring.

    Oooooh....

    Apple Cinema Display (23" or 20")
    B/T Mighty Mouse (please Apple!) and B/T Keyboard
    Another external HD (where does all the space go?)
    iSight
    As we're dreaming, a 15" MBP
    RAM is always good.
