    i'm browsing through their site, and can't really decide what to get with it. looked through the accesories and a new external drive might be an option.. but not seeing anything else that's a must buy right now. i may just buy some random items to gift later on. i'd like to see if people are thinking outside the box here tho, or just getting something to compliment their new MBA's. if you have something interesting you're planning to buy.. let me know, and maybe link the item here. thanks!

    I honestly don't know. There aren't any app from the App store I need/want.

    There aren't any apps for the iPhone i'm interested in right now.

    I'll have to browse iTunes to see if there's any albums I might of missed.


    Just to clarify, I can't use the iTunes card to purchase mac hardware correct? Like cables n stuff.
    I'd buy an app that let me use the middle mouse button as a two figure gesture. But I can't find anything.

    You actually get a $100 best buy gift card? I thought it was just a discount?:confused:

    hey, i was referring to the Best Buy gift card.. not the iTunes card :)

    yes, Best Buy was matching Apple's back to school promo. this was an addition to the discounted sale price

    I'm saving mine for the next iPhone. I have to buy it at full price so it will be handy.

    I thought about an Apple TV, but ultimately decided against it.

    Now THAT is a smart idea!
    Awesome way not to give best buy any more of your money. Plus Amazon is cheaper for a bunch of stuff, way bigger selection. Very solid!

    Try BetterTouchTool--I used it to set up a three-finger tap as a middle-click. It's a really useful little program.

    Yes, but if you bought the computer after 6/3/11 you get lion for free.

    I was told the $100 Best Buy gift card was only for education buyers and you need to provide proof.

    It's suppose to be, but I didn't have to provide proof, though I am a 21 year old student. So maybe they just didn't bother to check me.

    Can you reverse that and make a middle mouse click = 2 finger gesture?

    I'll look into it.
