I have a 12" powerbook gathering dust. The original plan was to sell it on ebay and buy an Apple TV. However, it doesn't seem like there is much demand for the older laptops, so I am considering using it as a media center using a mini-dvi to dvi to hdmi adapter. Would anyone here recommend this? I figure that I would removed most of the software from the laptop. Add an external hard drive. Install transmissions to download tv shows. The biggest drawback is the lack of remote control on the older laptops. Bluetooth mouse would work I suppose. Any software that people suggest as an interface? Any hardware that you reccomend? Or should I just get an ATV and hack it?
