Just wondering if I connect a non-Retina MacBook Pro to my HDTV via Mini Display>HDMI, am I able to use the HDTV as a second monitor, or is it constrained to mirroring the MBP display? What's the lag/resolution like? Cheers!

You can use an HDTV as external display device independent of the internal screen and without mirroring the internal to the external display.

Btw, a TV is made for moving images, thus watching static images from a computer might be nit that ideal.
