    System Preferences > Keyboard > Keyboard Shortcuts

    Or, you could simply put Terminal on the Dock. One click... open!

    You can't assign a shortcut to open an app through System Preferences.

    OP have a look at Visor.

    You're absolutely correct. I was thinking of Quicksilver and launching via scripts. To me, the Dock is a more elegant and simple solution.

    I use Visor, and it works perfectly. I just have Terminal auto-launch at login, and it hides itself away automatically, ready for me to hit my ^~ shortcut and fire away.
