I recently bought a 47" hd tv and would like to be able to watch things like hulu and YouTube ect. on it. I have a couple different ideas of how to do this and would like to know what yall think. Im also considering buying a macbook pro because im needing a new laptop.
Here are my ideas:
1. macbook pro with hdmi output. Would this output 1080p? Im in the market for a new laptop so this option would save me money.
2. Home theater pc built custom
3. Wait for new apple tv to come out.

Thanks Tim

And option 1 would output 1080p.

Ok thanks. Do you think the mbp would be the best option?

It's the cheapest option if you get a laptop anyway, as you only need to buy an appropriate adapter at www.monoprice.com.
