    I am a windows user but made a decision to switch to Mac after using my iPhone and iPad over the last couple of years. And I am planning to get a MBA 13/256:D and an Apple TV as my new Mac toys. So my questions here is, is it possible to stream videos from MBA to my HDTV using AppleTV/AirPlay?

    As of now I connect my iPad to the TV using the HDMI cable to watch the YouTube and other videos. But once I have the AppleTV, I am planning to use that to stream my YouTube videos to the HDTV using Airplay. Would it be possible to do the same from MBA? There is a reason to this as some of the videos I watch on YouTube are not playable from the mobile devices.

    Cheers

    Airplay/ Mirroring will play videos to your HDTV via the Apple TV if the Apple TV is connected to the HDTV via HDMI.

    That's great. If mirroring works from MBA to my TV via AppleTV, that's all I need to get my mac toys.
