    i have a mini and an ibook. i don't have a tv.

    i want to be able to watch movies in my living room and have a computer for the bedroom as well. i also want to be able to stream itunes music in either room. one room is covered by my airport express and stereo through itunes.

    so the way i see it my options are:
    1) get a tv and an apple tv. likely a 26/32 or 37" and 720p. use this for movies and audio. leave the mini in my bedroom.

    2) move the mini to the living room. get a 23 or 24" monitor and speakers to go with it. use this for movies and audio and purchase a newer macbook in the future for the bedroom. (use my ibook there for now)

    the other option is to just get a 24" imac for the bedroom and forget everything else because they're that nice.

    just want some opinions. thanks.

    Why not just leave the Mini in your bedroom and use the iBook + TV in lieu of the :apple:TV? It'll do all the same functions, and more.
