    I have a tiny tv and no dvd in my bedroom. I'm thinking to watch some movies from my Macbook Pro 17". Is this bad for the computer? I know it might a dumb question. :D

    It'll be as bad as using it as a computer. :D

    I do it all the time in VLC.

    Only if on a flight - and at other times only if its a video podcast. I use my desktop for movies and my iPhone while at school. If your laptop is bigger than your TV, I say go for it, shouldn't hurt any.

    Sometimes in flights, sometimes at home. It's rare for me to do though.

    ALL the time. I have a pretty big TV but it's out in the living room and it's so much more comfy to cuddle up in bed and watch a movie than to lay on the couch. It's absolutely not bad for your computer - your computer was designed to do this (and of course many other things as well). Plus, I only have a 15" so your 17" will be that much better.

    I watch movies on it often - both at home and when I'm traveling. :)

    I watch all my movies on my MBP. I don't have a DVD player for my TV. It shouldn't cause any problems at all :p
