    extra battery.

    marware screen protector/keyboard cover thing.

    a good bag with a padded compartment if you plan on taking it our of your house.

    don't skimp on the RAM.

    New PB don't have the keyboard-screen problem, you don't need the cover. Don't buy RAM from Apple, www.dealram.com. Do get a Gig. Do get a GOOD padded bag, like Brenthaven or STM.

    im pretty sure the max is 2 gigs. Buy a 1 gig stick, make sure it is so-dimm and pc2700. check out these prices: http://www.pricegrabber.com/search_...50:206&popup7[]=0&form_keyword=&lo_p=0&hi_p=0

    Get the 'brand name' if you're worried. 2 Gig is the max.

    perhaps, but since i lug my PB to and from the office daily with the PB sandwiched between a PC laptop and all the adapters and crap for both laptops, it makes me feel warm and fuzzy knowing i have the extra protection in there to keep my screen from getting scratched. :)

    i'm one of those "better safe than sorry" people. :dunno:
