Here's a list of hardware I've compiled that represents my personal choices for quality hardware to go with apple's computers. Many of these things will work with windows PC's too but some is Mac only so I wanted to get that out of the way. This is my own personal list of stuff I have chosen for a number of reasons, I take into account many things such as price, build quality, functionality, and design. The purpose of this is not to showcase the cheapest components nor the absolute end-all best components, but somewhere in between.
