    My question is that is it worth now investing in Component AV Cable that i can use to mirror the iPad screen or will Airplay Mirroring will make the accessory useless?
    Obviously Wi-Fi doesn't have the same bandwidth as the component. Can you still play Real Racing or Infinity Blade over Airplay Mirroring?
    From what I saw in the video on apple's website, showing some pictures had some lag, about 500ms, that's half a second, which is too much for gameplay.

    Do you guys have some thoughts about this?

    I'm not sure if anyone but devs on iOS 5 would know, but if it's for games, I'd go with the cable. Everything else, I'd mirror to an Apple TV.
