    Im thinking about buying new peripherals/upgrades to my computer before OS X Lion arrives, but what would be the best choice?

    Is it the Magic TrackPad or would 8GB of RAM be more useful in the new OS - or anything else I haven't thought about??

    Magic Trackpad is a dream in my opinion to have anytime :). But given a choice between the two - I'd definitely do the RAM for the new OS. Multitasking would go much smoother. No need to buy from Apple - do Newegg and save a bit.

    For me...

    RAM > SSD > Momentus XT HDD > Trackpad

    I have 8GB of RAM and a Momentus XT. It is enough to keep all four of our Mini users cached; everything stays nice and snappy.

    I've just been watching some vids on using the trackpad and I think it is pretty sweet. I didn't see much in-app navigation though. We use iPhoto a lot and it would be nice to navigate events and individual photos using gestures. I hope it can do that.

    As for ram, IMO you need to have enough for your system to run to your satisfaction so I would install plenty of it then worry about a trackpad.
