Congrats. I did the same about a month ago and it's a great machine.

Get yourself a good case. The Brenthaven case is fantastic and I highly recommend it. Nice thick padded sleeve and excellent carry case.

If you plan on using it at home, get the bluetooth keyboard and mouse. Yes, it's a single-button mouse but there's not a good alternative that is reliable from what I've found.

Beyond that, I can't think of anything you should get. An external display is always nice though!

If you're going to take it places (i just use mine around the house) then get a nice sleeve or bag.

I'd also suggest a nice bluetooth mouse and the apple wireless keyboard. I use those w/ my PB connected to a monitor and it's a nice desktop replacement.

Get a nice sleeve and stick it in a canvas bag or something insignificant. Sometimes security by obscurity works

I dunno it's kinda back and fourth. If you travel a lot you'll want to stick it in your bag. A laptop bag just SCREAMS "STEAL ME I'M WORTH SOMETHING!"

Well not always hehe. I'd get a ticase if I could but meh.

Actually I didn't... I remembered that I had to pay for a holiday to New York and I'm also going to Brighton this weekiend, I'm pretty annoyed to say the least, If I don't get it in the next 2 weeks then I'll definatly get it in April.

But, I'll bekeeping tabs on this thread and making up a list of things to get.

Many thanks for your suggestions.
