If Apple doesn't give me what I want at tomorrow's announcement, I'm going to consider buying an AppleTV. But I need to load OS X on it to surf the net and load a few programs on it. Realplayer Superpass, Quicktime, Safari/Firefox, Standard iTunes. What I can't get a handle on is how it is to live with in real life? I have little patience for technology that doesn't work well, and little patience with slowness. Questions: Would doing the above on AppleTV be a nightmare in the speed/effectiveness department or is it a non-issue? I have a 56" 720 DLP. Would both the AppleTV and internet/programs look good on it? I'm looking for objective impressions to glean if I can pull this off without getting angry at it. Thank you.
