    hey.. im thinking about switching to mac and getting either a macbook or a macbook pro. Ive been impressed in hearing the things that a mac can do and i was wondering if there was a way for me to hook up my 360 to it and use it as an external monitor when i go on trips where there will be no tv. Thanks

    I'm pretty sure that as with any other computer (Mac or PC) you can't do that because there will be some sort of delay from the time you press a button on the control 'til the time you see it appear on the screen. I could be wrong though.

    I think there is an EyeTV (El Gato) product that lets you connect VCRs, DVDs using a RCA connection.

    You just plug the USB dongle to your Mac, and the XBox to the dongle.
