    Will I be able to use Airplay from my iMac to ATV for watching a movie and still be able to work on the iMac? Say if my girlfriend wants to watch a movie and I need to work.

    Cheers / Micke

    No, it mirrors the screen. If you want to stream a movie, just use the Airplay features in iTunes.

    That means we will have to have the movie in the right format :p

    Right. I admit it would be nice to have an option to use the Airplay feature as an external display rather than only as a Mirror, but it's much better than what we had before.

    I thought you could already do that with Lion, I know, just having got an :apple: TV, that you can do it. You don't use mirroring just airplay, when you play the movie in iTunes just click on the :apple:TV then you can do whatever you want on you mac and the movie plays away to itself on your telly.
