    I've had my iMac for a few months now. I feel like when I got my Macbook, I had a long list of accessories I wanted to go with it. I realize this is probably just because it's portable, but I can't think of ANY for my iMac. Did anyone buy any accessories for their iMac to make it more enjoyable?

    I immediately got a new mouse (hate the mighty mouse!), and maxed out the ram. I guess you're right, I really don't need anything else for my iMac...that feels pretty nice. Guess I can start buying nice apps now. :p

    I actually don't mind them, I lay on my bed and watch TV shows and movies and can hear it fine.

    USB hub?

    edit; USB devices I use; keyboard, printer, scanner, ipod, camera, external microphone, usb key-drive, wacom tablet......fortuantely, the two external drives are using Firewire although they could use USB as well

    The first thing I bought for my iMac last year was another 1Gb of RAM to make it 2Gb.

    Earlier this year I maxed it out to 4Gb and bought some new speakers!

    The Griffin Powermate is a must have if you do video editing or want a really cool volume knob for iTunes. ;)

    More enjoyable? Nothing necessary. More usable? USB hub. Safer? External hard disk for backups.

    I agree, 4gb made my already fast iMac faster! I would also agree to a usb hub my ports are all full.
