    Looks like you covered all the bases. You could always get a notebook stand of some sort. I like my iLap. There are keyboard covers if you are into that kind of thing but I'm not a fan. There are also various cases which I think take away from the look and add needless weight unless you get something that is light and clear.

    I also got a hard case for the exterior (Speck Hard Case clear) to protect against dings/scratches, and got a keyboard cover / screen cleaner (Shaggmac.com).

    You could also consider an external mouse or extra monitor, though one could argue that's it's not an "upgrade" to you MB specifically.

    Otherwise, you should be all set!

    I thought about something. Buy an external HDD for backups.

    If you want a desktop external or have multiple computers to backup then get the Mercury Elite-AL Pro
    If you want a portable external then get the Mercury On-The-Go Pro.

    send it to colorwarepc
    switch the optical drive if you don't use it much with a second HD or an SSD.
