Any recommendations on a good USB mic? I will be using it with garage band and logic express from my laptop and iMac.

Do yourself a favor and stay away from usb mics and adapters.
They're made mostly for podcasting (internet chat radio)
Not as good analog>digital converters (cheaper chips)
You'll have problems monitoring for track overlays
you wont be able to use anything else with it (asio only lets you use 1 device at a time)
short usb cords will put more computer noise into recordings

Get a regular usb interface and regular mics.

This is what I was gonna say too

I'm getting into recording hardware and everyone I've talked to says basically the same as what timobrien says here.

But if you have to have one on the desktop the MXL Stereo USB007 has been great.
