I currently have a 2009 mac mini that I use as a HTPC hooked up to a 52" Sony. With Plex and a 2tb hard drive it is a pretty nice set up for watching movies and tv shows when I want to (I also use the mini for recording with Garageband). However, after yesterdays news with AirPlay mirroring it seems that you could do just about everything you want to with a HTPC for a lot less $$ with an ATV set up and Mountain Lion. If the ATV were upgraded to 1080p it might be a part of Apple's strategy to get into the living room. Curious what thoughts other people might have on this?
