    I am going to need a couple of cables,immediately required will be a Firewire 800 to 400 Adaptor.

    Do I need to get the official Apple adaptor,or would a cheaper version from eBay work just as well.

    I suppose this question is good for all cables,or are there some where only Apple ones will do?

    Thanks

    Alan

    monoprice.com

    There's nothing special about Apple branded cables except the price.

    Sorry guys,I should have said I am in the UK.

    I would expect there will be something like monoprice.com
    here,but being my first Mac I don't know these things.

    Thanks

    Thanks for the links.

    Don't suppose anyone wants to recommend a Keyboard do they?

    Problem is,if some instruction say's Hold down the Apple key,which one is that on a non Apple keyboard?

    ...I meant, another vote for monoprice!

    The logitech solar K760 keyboard, or the apple keyboard
