    Let's say Apple were to be extremely generous and actually allow mouse input for iOS devices. People could finally use their iPads as near perfect laptop replacements (albeit without direct access to the file system) but more importantly, every ATV could transform very quickly with a software update into a lightweight desktop computer running iOS.

    Grab an ATV and plug it into a computer monitor for a system that could give a Chromebook a run for it's money or alternatively, AirDisplay from an iPhone/iPad that has more computing power.

    What do you think?
