You often see them on eBay (well eBay UK seems to have a few).

The Apple US site sells them new clicky not sure if the url I've left for you will be session based - if so you won't be able to follow the link - but try it anyway. I just typed remote in the Apple Store - it was about the 5th product in the results list and costs $29.

I saw one the other day at Circuit City not too long ago. Was about $50 or so. Guess they have some markup with that. Think I'll try not to lose mine , but stuff happens.

Yep, RNDdave, your right, the link is session based....

Apple Remote Control

This is from the ozzie eBay site ^^^

That item doesn't look like it ships outside of Aust but you could probably ask the seller about that.

I've used mine quite a few times in these first few days of ownership - it works super with front row - handy for moving a bit faster through some of the 'embarrassing' shots. It's also quicker to use when listening to music in the background - to skip or control volume.

My case has a small case for the remote that attaches to it which looks pretty cool and means I don't lose it, but I also haven't used it much - nice for showing photo slideshows etc.

I'm sure that I could send my iMac to snoozeland when I first tried my remote, but now it doesn't seem to work - or I've forgotten how to bring it on...
