    I love my iCurve, but I guess it has to be my big external HD.

    wow, the ilap looks awesome.

    I was thinking of getting an icurve, but this seems to be a better option.
    more functional.

    1) Crumpler Crippy Duck when I still had a laptop
    2) LaCie Big Disk (you can never have too much space, and being able to have a cloned, bootable copy of your internal drive along with everything else is always a HUGE PLUS
    3) Carbon Copy Cloner (see #2.)
    4) Since software probably doesn't count, my Samsung 172x. I can count it as an accessory since it started as a second monitor for my laptop instead of the only screen for a desktop (which it has become in recent days)

    Having seen Crumpler's website, I wouldn't buy a Crumpler bag on principle

    Haha. It is pretty bad, isn't it? The bag was a gift to me, and having used it for quite a while I can say with confidence that it would be your loss if you were to dismiss them that easily. :)

    Quite honestly, the best accessory for my Mini is the Belkin USB hub. I would hate to have to try and plug my iPod Shuffle into the back of the Mini, or attach an extension cable everytime I wanted to use it. The front ports on the hub are a god-send.

    My only complaint with it, is it needs more ports. I have filled up all but one of the ports on it.

    Griffin AirClick USB

    This may be my best accessory as I can control iTunes anywhere in the house, and many other functions on my Mac. It was $25.00 and has been the best purchase ever!

    My MiniPal. It added 160GB of storage to my Mini, it boots runs OS X faster than my Mini's internal drive, and it added 4 USB ports and 3 firewire ports. Also, it looks nice and is quiet.

    Magasin chopping board, so that I actually can use my laptop on my lap (and any other soft and uneven surface).

    An iDog. It sits by my iMac and dances when iTunes is on.

    I'd say my Logitech MX510 mouse. Opened up a whole new world of right-clicking to me, and I've got Exposé and stuff mapped to all the spare buttons. :)

    That's a tough one, but I'd have to say my Bose Noise-Cancelling Headphones.
    Allows me to be in my own little world while I'm working on my Powerbook.
