    Oh.. on your Mac eh?

    I don't know what you need... perhaps, wireless mouse and keyboard?

    Or socks for your iPod?

    you could get a gig for 125 and have 75 left. toss in alittle bit more cash and get an airport express


    the key combo for you would be an airport express and ram

    how much ram do you have now? :dunno:

    Good idea, bad idea.

    Tiger is going to have some problems when it comes out. Just like osX10.2...I would wait until tiger is out, and it has a green light. Because OSx10.3 is very stable at this point.

    I would get RAM big time...then an isight would be killer...or an shuffle...or ummmmmm....ilife05

    256 built in and 256 stick it seems to be good enough

    maybe some for my windows desktop
    i really love the isight but im the only one i know who has a isight. idk about the shuffle since i already have a 20gb 4g ipod. ilife05 doesnt excite me since i have last yrs version
    im just gonna save it for my dell 20in widescreen only 550 :)

    Ram on a Mac is like taking a red bull. It's a big jump in performance.

    But if it were more ram or a big monitor, and you don't have a digital multimedia profession, then I would just save for the monitor as well.

    I'm looking to get a 1gb chip for my iBook. Do any of you have a link to these sub $200 ram chips that you guys have been mentioning?
