I recently bought a 40 inch Samsung LCD HDTV and am wanting to play movies and shows from itunes on it. My iMac (intel core duo, 1.83 Ghz) is literally four feet away from the new tv. AppleTV seems a little pricey for the purpose of moving media a mere four feet. Considering the fact that my mac is so close, I could even use the mac remote. Any reasons I should not do this? Also, does anyone know if there is a way to play media off my imac on my tv with a vga cable without leaving my imac screen on?
