I love my Apple TV but a chain of events has me thinking about going Boxee. A little background ... I currently have: MacBook aluminum 2.4GHz; Apple TV; 46" Sony XBR; iPod touch 64gb; Kindle 2; Xbox 360; Playstation 3; 5.1 surround system. Everything connected with HDMI where possible, else component. I have a new desktop coming in a few days, already ordered ... I bought it mostly for video editing and Web browsing on the TV. It is: HP with i7-930 processor; 9gb of RAM; 2TB hard drive; TV tuner; 1gb video card with DVI, HDMI and VGA connections; Soundblaster card; Blu-Ray player and burner. I was halfway ignoring the iPad, but the most recent reviews have me thinking seriously about it. And since I now have this desktop coming, it occurred to me ... maybe I should sell the laptop and use the iPad for mobile computing. Then use the desktop for power computing. That set off a series of thoughts about streamlining my array of gadgets ... for instance, if I like reading on the iPad, I'd sell the Kindle. Which brings me to the Apple TV ... and again ... I love it and have no special desire to replace it. I do not feel limited by it. My basic question is whether I can easily do the same/similar things via a PC; if so, it becomes duplicative. Boxee people ... on a Windows 7 computer ... can I: - run Boxee on one monitor (ie the television) while I do other stuff in the other monitor? I have a 21.5" 1920x1080 monitor I could hook up via DVI while I use HDMI for the TV. - get to my iTunes library via Boxee, with album art etc? - play movies I bought via iTunes? Play movies I rented via iTunes?
