    hey guys,

    couldnt do it. I was gonna go with a apple tv but i fell in love with a 13 inch mac book pro. This things flies. what do i need to play movies from it and attach it to my 52 inch. This is my first intel mac and im kind of lost.

    also how does plex work. I downloaded it but i dont see what it does....?

    You need a mini-DisplayPort to HDMI adapter, and an HDMI cable. Get the adapter from monoprice.

    Plex is media center software. Think of it like Front Row on steroids. Lots of steroids.
