    Yes, you have a download speed of 1.86MB/s, that is more than enough to stream HD.

    Yes, as most HD movies have a smaller data rate than 1.86MB/s.

    A 90 minute HD movie with a data rate of 1.5MB/s would be 7.9GB big.

    An HD trailer in 1080p resolution on Apple's Trailer page has an average data rate of 8 to 10 Mb/s, thus 1 to 1.125 MB/s.

    An HD trailer in 720p will have around 6Mb/s, thus less than 1MB/s.

    I havent had any issue streaming movies from my external connected to the iMac. Quality seems ok just depending on the rip of the movie. Netflix seems to work without issues.
