Finally got my mac mini, and I absolutely love it.
I got the standard 80GB Superdrive one...and I'm wondering what upgrades or accessories does anyone out there suggest that I make first??

1.) More RAM depending on what you got built-in. I'd do nothing less than 512Mb
2.) An external Hard Drive.
3.) *insert your favorite app here*

I just placed a bid on the external drive.
Where can I find good prices on RAM?

I got mine from crucial.com, and while there are some consumer type places offering sale prices on RAM (best buy, circuit city, etc.) they all have the mail in rebate thing. My 512meg stick was $71US (free shipping, UPS 2 day) and I was pretty sure that it was going to work based on what others said about their RAM. So far they are right, it works just fine.

Opening the case wasn't all that big of a deal, I was even able to accomplish it without scratching up my Mac despite not lining it up to correctly to close it and having to re-open it to get the alignment right.
