    This was just discussed on the forum in the last couple days. There's no video in on Macs, so you're left with something like EyeTV to bring in the video, but by all reports, it kinda sucks.

    yeah any kind of video in and you will have lag so it's not worth playing games on laptop screens.

    heh! i orginally thought this was gonna be another internet sharing thread :p

    yeah that's a good idea and i'm thinking the same as you. looking for a 15" lcd tv with a component and vga hookups so i can put it in my gf's son's room for a computer and his ps2. they can be had for around $100 on ebay. i'm just trying to be one of the lucky ones :p
