    So what do you think is the best feature or application of you mac/mac setup (ATV, iphone, etc)? What do you show off to people to really demonstrate the full potential of your mac? I am fairly new to apple products, but am already in love with them, and would love to know how people are using these to their greatest potential.

    I control my Mac mini from my MacBook through back to my mac from a distance of 2 feet because I don't have a mouse on my mini. Cool huh ;)

    Hahaha...

    In all seriousness of this thread though, getting terminal to sing for you is fun and dangerous at the same time. ;)

    I control my torrent downloads via text messaging and AppleScript on my Mini Media Center. And I have it text me back after it completes the AppleScript. I watch TV with my iMac 24" and Elgato EyeTV. I use my 12" iBook as a living room internet machine to look up pron between commercials.

    But you know what? I could do all of this stuff with a PC too. Macs are just computers you know? The computer doesn't make the user powerful, its a user that uses the power of a computer.

    I control the lights in my place with my iPhone and/or voice.
