    Magic Trackpad with a Wireless Logitech keyboard (K350) that I have.

    For anyone who hasn't used one, a Magic Trackpad will literally change the way you use OS X Lion. Trust me.

    I have:
    Apple wired aluminum

    Apple Bluetooth Keyboard (Awesome keyboards, i recommend all apple products)

    Logitech performance MX (you cant beat it, its one of the best mice out there, i use it for day to day stuff) http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Wireless-Performance-Mouse-Mac/dp/B002HWRJBM/ref=sr_1_1?ie=UTF8&qid=1338342434&sr=8-1

    Apple magic trackpad (good for lion and websurfing/mail/docs, not much else though)

    Logitech g19 (great keyboard, my main keyboard) http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-Programmable-Gaming-Keyboard-Display/dp/B001NXDBI6/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1338342495&sr=1-1

    Creative gigaworks t20 series ii (great speakers, got em for 80, on sale for 60 @amazon, good noise, great for music) http://www.amazon.com/Creative-GigaWorks-Multimedia-BasXPort-Technology/dp/B001RNOHDU/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1338342542&sr=1-1

    Belkin 7 port usb hub (excellent hub, highly recommended. Its powered, so no dying ports like on other models) http://www.amazon.com/Belkin-USB-Plus-Port-F5U307-BRN/dp/B000NAXC6G/ref=sr_1_4?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1338342597&sr=1-4

    I love everything on my desk. If i could upgrade one, it would be the speakers, to the t40, or if i had no budget, the Bower & Wilkin MM-1. The reviews for the that are stellar.

    I'm with you on this one. I hate standard mice, especially for audio editing and video games. I have two of the Logitech Marble Mouse http://www.amazon.com/Logitech-910-000806-Trackman-Marble-Mouse/dp/B001F42MKG/ref=sr_1_1?s=electronics&ie=UTF8&qid=1338348073&sr=1-1. They're inexpensive and work really well. Once you go trackball, you never go back.

    I also have the latest gen Apple wired keyboard. Really good action on those keyboards.
