Just ordered a new 24" Imac and looking to buy some new speakers and a HD enclosure for a 250gb drive I have from my old PC. What speakers and Enclosure do you guys think would look the best with the new Imac? Im thinking Soundsticks and a brushed aluminum enclosure but Im open to other ideas.......

...in addition to being amazing speakers, i think the logitech z2300's would look great with the new imacs...

I like the JBL Creature 1 in silver, nice and small, good sound.

As for external enclosures, you have a tun of choices. I think the Lacie HD's are a good fit, made out of alumiun.

Also the Super G ones are nice looking.

basing stuff on uk products for links etc

speakers - aego m's black (with silver accents) but solid metal, I think black will work well with the new imac's black glass.

hard drive enclosure - you dont say if you want pata or sata but I would suggest taking a look at the silverstone ms04/ms03/ms01 - I have the ms01 and its a stunning bit of kit, solid extruded aluminum in silver or black (I think I would personally pick black to complement the imac black again).

But having said all that I have a fondness for black as I would also be using a black with silver keyboard and mouse (ms 4000 and 6000 natural)

As you say its the pata (the older ide - that 2"x 1/4" rectangle with lots of pins) then I would say get the ms04 as its got firewire and usb2.0. As we all know firewire is faster than usb2.0 :)
