Hello everyone, I'm brand new here. I've been checking out macs for a while, and I finally put in my order for a 17" powerbook g4. I was wondering what type of sleeve everyone would recommend, and any other accessories that are useful and/or vital. Thank you in advance.

If you have previously used windows you may want a kensington mouse that has two buttons or something similar to it.

Or you could go with the one button mac bluetooth mouse.

Absolutely, get a mouse. 2 buttons and a scroll wheel.

Logitech and Microsoft make the best IMO. I don't see any point in a bluetooth mouse on a powerbook as you have to be close to a laptop anyway, can't beat wires for reliability, no battery to charge etc.

Make sure you get USB, not PS/2

Thanks for the suggestion, though I'd rather buy directly from somewhere in the UK than mess around with huge delivery times, high shipping prices, risk of import duty costs etc etc etc that are involved with getting something posted from half way around the world
