earlier I used to use Norton 2003 which could notprotect me PC from mydoom virus even after installing patches. So i switched over to Network Associates/McAfee corporate edition 7 which could solve it with ease.

Symantec Antivirus Coporate Edition. However, its not effective against the trojans, spyware, etc. For those i am using a Zone Alarm firewall downloaded from download.com and it works beautifully.

Suggest you keep a Norton parked inside your machine. More so if you're getting files from outside.
Which Mac (17 inch Powerbook??) by the way and what specs?

I use Contour Design's MiniPro Travel Mouse(one of best Mouse I ever used in last 15 years of computing)$22.

While at home , I connect my old 15" monitor and also use Apple Pro USB keyboard ($49) with macmice 2 botton scroll wheel USB mouse( gr8 Apple design made even better. Looks,feels and works exactly the same as Apple one button USB Mouse) $40.

I use Tucano (Itali) Second Skin Sleeve($21) to store my iBook.

Just last week I added Airport Express wireless base station (with Airtunes)for $129 (Fantastic!).

And of course almost addicted to iPod (mini) $249

Next additions would be:

1> D Link Bt120 Blue Tooth Dongle ($40)
2> 2.5" External Firewire/USB2.0 Hard disk ($75)
