My wife and I have 2 Powerbook G4's (1.67 hi res and 1.33). We have an HD tv in the living room along with a DVR, HD DVD, Wii and NAS. Basically all of our HD connections are taken (1 HDMI, 2 Compon. - but 4 composite/SVid are open). In our bedroom we have an old CRT (coax & mono composite input). We like to fall asleep to movies/shows and set the sleep timer. It is a hassle to hook up the powerbooks to the TV at night so we mostly use DVDs, but we would like the content from our laptops. The Powerbooks are still fully functioning and are great for basic computing and some freelance design. But extremely laggy for video (internet and backup rips) I have a mac pro at work that i can use as a work horse if i need to convert anything. With MWSF around the corner, we are contemplating adding another computer to our home collection. new thin macbook maybe? Lately it has occurred that with screen sharing on a mac mini in leopard, we could use the mini as a server and the pbooks as clients. The file sharing and screen sharing is so robust and simple in leopard that I feel like the whole argument has changed from when tv was announced. could a C2D mini breath new life into our old computers and allow us to watch internet based content on our TV(albeit in 1 room), store all of our photos, home movies, files, DVD backups? or is the money better spent on 2 apple TVs and knowing that there is a hassle-free reliability. Anyone have a c2d mac mini that they screen share with?
