    I bought a iMac in november after waiting all summer for leopard so i could buy my first mac. For the money the iMac was a better buy than a MacBook.

    Now i'm going to college and im getting a MacBook as my graduation present. I am kinda bummed i spent all that money on this beautiful computer and now its going to just sit.

    My question is:

    Is there a way i can play my XBOX 360 off of it and/or Watch tv off of it? Then i can bring it to my dorm.

    check out the Elgato Hybrid.

    it will suit your every wish whether it TV tuner or xbox on your mac!


    I can't wait to purchase one

    lets not get greedy.


    to be honest I dont know that kind of stuff about the Elgato - but just be glad there is a solid, reliable way to do everything you've asked for.

    and cheap too - check out the pricing for it.. its really remarkable.

    enjoy.

    I know you can receive HD channels on the TV tuner..

    personally, the 360 and PS3 look so ridiculously awesome on the 24'' screen already, I dont care for HD gaming.. but somebody else might know.

    its a worthy investment, considering your needs though..

    hooking up a videogame system to a computer is not a good idea - there will be a lag.
