Best accessory? Condoms, for all the ladies you pick up with your sexy Air.

Oh yeah, and a Tucano second skin sleeve. If only they'd not put on that "Macbook Air" text on it, so you aren't advertising.

I just rejoined the ranks of MBA owners and it feels good, I really missed having my MBA. Which I will use to segue into my most-wanted item, though not really an accessory, a Runcore SSD. I just ordered a 64GB for my new(used) 1.6GHz Rev. B.

I don't use any accessories; at most the AC adapter if you count that as an accessory.

Everything is wireless. I don't use external mice, keyboards, etc. If anything I find a wifi hotspot and I access my files via VPN to my home network.

An external monitor, and a 60wh / 100wh Hypermac battery are the only things I use. I love the smaller hypermac batteries, fit in my travel bag very easily, are lightweight, and increase the battery life quite a bit.

Just purchased a MacBook Air rev.C last week. Wonderful! Here's what I purchased along with it:

- Spire Torq laptop backpack with sleeve
- LG slim DVD/CD drive (self powered)
- Griffin USB hub

That's it for now ...

A thumbdrive is about all I regularly use with my Air. I have a cheap bag that I got at the campus bookstore that works great for jamming all my books and the Air in.

My favorite accessory is my Verizon MiFi. It gives me wireless internet wherever I am, and I don't need to plug anything into the USB port.

I got this bag for my Air.
Colourfastt, I love that bag so much I finally had to delurk to ask what kind it is!

My must-have: a Timbuk2 Curly-Q quilted laptop sleeve. That thing has taken a couple of decent hits, and my beloved little Air is none the worse for it.

My new Macbook Air just arrived today... I've been looking at buying this leather sleeve and leather carrying bag. What do you think?

I like this sleeve.

I had a Kenneth Cole bag that was very "pretty," in a photo, on the Internet. The problem was, I got it and it was poorly made. After six months it was literally falling apart at the seams.

I would recommend that whatever bag you buy, you see it in person and ensure it is well constructed and meets all of the needs for everything you plan to carry in it from the charger, to MBA, to books, pens and etc. I find that reviews don't seem to match what I expect from designer bags, and that photos on the Internet cannot show the quality of the bag.

good luck
