Advantages: Battery easily replaced, small profile, simple, HUGE range
Disadvantages: Price? Shop around for this one.
I bought the Apple Remote with the main aim of controlling my iTunes library from across the room on my MacBook Pro, not thinking about the iPod at all. The remote can be bought alone, or with the universal dock which will accept all iPods and enable control from the remote when plugged in to speakers or a computer.
The remote opens up a new list of features when used on the Mac, pushing the Menu button opens Front Row, a menu for your music, films, photos and more. This is great if you would like to use your Mac (any Mac with an IR port) as a full blow media centre, which is perfectly possible and easy to do with a few searches online. You could connect your Mac to a TV, sound system etc and control the core features all with this tiny white device, which will happily drop into your pocket at its 3.25 inch size.
The remote would be great for business meetings, presentations or a family get together and can control slide shows of your home pictures and videos as well as being the master control for DVDs or iTunes purchased films.
Summary: A must have accessory for any Mac owner.
