    Greetings!

    I had an ATV when it first came out, but returned it. I have a 52" LCD. At the applestore I saw the latest version of frontrow and was impressed. Can anyone compare the interface between Take 2 and Frontrow?

    I mainly am interested in the music coverflow presentation and viewing my own movie content.

    Thanks!

    I'm trying to decide on getting an ATV now or a iMac.

    I have a late 2006 MB and I love to connect it to my 40" LCD TV, with Front Row I do excatly what you say you want to do.

    The only reason why I haven't needed the :apple:TV is beacuse currently the MB is my only mac and it's always at Home near my TV.

    You may want the :apple:TV if you want it to be a stand alone device and you want to avoid connecting and disconnecting your mac to the TV/Home Theater. Or if some other users will be using it.

    Some people prefer the MacMini instead of the :apple:TV.

    It's pretty much the same, for your own movies and music.

    There's a guided tour at apple.com - if I remember, it shows most of the features: http://www.apple.com/appletv/
