    Mouse & keyboard + griffin elevator?
    External HD for timemachine?
    If you're really lucky, ACD?

    I really like the elevator idea, except for my desk may be a bit misshapen for it :( .

    I'm actually leaning towards a WD passport.

    ACD=Apple Cinema Display;)

    I think an external keyboard+mouse would be good, and if that doesn't do it, how about a new printer or something? Do you like particular software? Did you ever wish you had particular software?

    In the end, a giftcard might be good too.:)

    iPods always look nice too! But if you have one I'd go with a keyboard and mouse!

    I thought USB 2.0 transfered faster than firewire.

    Nope. Firewire can maintain a more constant speed, while USB will drop off after a few moments. This becomes apparent with even medium-sized transfers (like my old iPod's music). The Firewire can usually shave off a good chunk of time, even with transfers as small as 100MB.

    That's a sweet drive and would look great with your laptop! I might be inclined to go with firewire.

    I just hope it comes with a white USB cord, i'm going for that clean all white look.
