I am currently using the last 20" G5 iMac and now must upgrade for compatibility with iOS devices. I figure that with the transition to iPads going on in my household our direct interaction with the computer itself will become less and less over the next few years as it mainly becomes the repository for our media (photos, video, music, movies) and interface with our peripherals (printer, scanner, external HDs). With this in mind I am considering purchasing a new family room HDTV (I can fit up to 55") to become the monitor for a new mac mini. How would that work as an occasional workstation from a seat on the sofa 10 feet away? For reference I currently have a 42" plasma SDTV which is virtually illegible when I plug in my G3 iBook. FWIW I also own an Apple TV.
