So I'm getting a MBA and one of the main uses of it for me would be streaming and renting videos.
I'd like to hook it up to my main TV via HDMI, but the MBA doesn't have an HDMI port so how/what do I need to make the connection?

Mini DP to HDMI female and a Male to Male HDMI cord. Audio and sound.

For a bit more, you could get an Apple TV and then stream content from the MBA over AirPlay.

I'm a little confused by the reviews there - does this cable carry audio on the latest MacBook Airs or not?
I haven't used it on the new one yet as I am waiting for the back to school promotion to start, but the audio did work on my 2012 MBA. So I'd assume it should still work on the 2013 model.

Apple TV is due for an update at any moment - not really worth the purchase at this point. I ditched mine around Christmas. I'm surprised it has taken this long!

Worth it to just buy a $5-$20 cable for these types of scenarios.
