What do I need an Apple TV for?
Just a little over a month ago from today, I made a post entitled “Nintendo Wii + Mac Mini = entertainment paradise“, which laid out the way in which I synergized my Mac Mini and Nintendo Wii together to make a pretty damn good entertainment system. Now, the Apple TV just started shipping yesterday, and I don’t think that the Apple TV really has anything extra that justifies purchasing it. This is especially since I’ve already got a Mac Mini (which a lot of people claim is already a great replacement for the Apple TV. And with the added capabilities of the Nintendo Wii’s remote, I don’t see any real justification to get it – but, I will definitely still keep an eye out for one if the price ever falls into range of my budget and I begin to feel inconvenienced by some of the shortfalls of a Mac Mini and Nintendo Wii combination .
