Hello This is my first post here following a period of lurking so please be gentle I currently use a laptop sitting under the tv running windows media center on vista to play dvd's and since yesterday Netflix as I was going down the route of ATV and thought I should try it first. It's all working very nicely which now makes me stop and wonder, do i really need the atv box? What benefits if any could it give me? I could just install iTunes on the pc. The only one I could think of is silent running which isn't a major issue with the laptop anyway Thanks in advance Matt.
