What are you asking Mac Santa for this year?

What kind of cool Mac gifts are on your Christmas wish list this year? I’m hoping to get iLife 11 as it’ll be a nice upgrade from my iLife 08. I’d like iWork 11 as well, but that’s not out just yet. I’m also hoping Santa brings me an Apple iPad case. I love my […]
