    I may get flamed here, but although I use the trackpad most of the time, I did buy another MM for precision work....:)

    Speck clear shell to keep fellow musicians fingerprints off the alloy, and soon I'm going to take up drawing again, so will be adding a Magic Trackpad.

    I like the backpacks, especially this particular one. I have the Incase Nylon Sleeve Bag (Black) for now but when I'm in school, I am definitely purchasing that as my every-day use for backpack :)

    Head over to monoprice and get a bunch of USB, ethernet, and video cables, and a USB hub, and audio jacks and adapters. Really cheap, and you always wind up needing one for something.

    Moshi Palmguard with trackpad film.

    I bought and buy that for every one of my Mac portables to date.

    I have recently started using the iSkin Pro keyboard protector. Seems to work pretty well since I do at times eat potato chips next to my computer.

    I have a couple Thule sleeves for my MacBook Pro and my MacBook Air; works pretty well and offers good protection.

    Love the Arc mouse myself; only issue I have is the rubber collects a lot of dust while it's in my bag.

    MM is just toooo small for me. Trackpad is fantastic as well as magic keyboard. I don't know whether a external monitor be an "assessory" yet with it more than 22 inch you would have a fresh view of Mac OS:)

    A barstool, Innis & Gunn in hand
    Recently upgraded to a new machine, and I've grabbed a few things thus far:

    Speck hardshell (I prefer the Satin finish over the nonSatin)
    Sleeve and matching powercord case from Etsy
    miniDV to HDMI adapter with an HDMI cable

    I'd like to get some type of lapdesk or cooler, but I'm not entirely satisfied with anything I've found yet.

    Just a sticker over the apple on my MBP.

    I had a keyboard cover (annoying) and a speck case (bulky and also annoying). after those trial and errors I like the natural look and feel of it.

    besides those I have a logitech illuminated keyboard, a cyborg rat7 mouse, and an external trackpad (love that thing). but my favorite is the dual thunderbolt displays (that I have not used yet but bought them and had them shipped "home")

    I wish I could say I liked the magic mouse but i tried it once and just couldn't get the feel for it. I want to buy one and give another shot rather than just an in the store trial, because they seem so practical and I love the fact that it is bluetooth. Just feels awkward and small.

    Best accessories:
    1. Bluetooth mouse or high-performance wireless USB mouse, e.g. Performance MX. They're worth the money you dump into them.
    2. NAS-integrated router. An elegant solution like Time Capsule allows for wireless backups from anywhere in the world! (YMMV)
    3. Apple Thunderbolt Display.

    My new MBP is ideal.

    A fully optioned BTO model, it's not lacking anything.

    The trackpad is exemplary.

    My magic mouse and incase backpack =)

    I like to keep the set up pretty simple and minimalist.

    Swiss Army laptop backpack and my Bamboo Tablet! Makes video and photo editing sooo much easier. I love my tablet and recommend that everyone gets one!
