ok so I'm trying to decide if I wanna hike up for after getting a new TV for my apartment:



an apple tv to go with it with my mountain lion + airparrot for wireless hd dekstop mirroring

or...

getting a ps3 and netflix account to go with it




Which would you go for?

Is there a way to mirror your dekstop wirelessly with the ps3?

the only real question here is... do you want to play games?

if you do: ps3
if you don't: apple tv

as far as I know there's no way to mirror your desktop wirelessly with a ps3.

<have a ps3.

Typical comment for Apple hate. Apple makes superior products with high quality but for guys who are programmers and such..sure they suck.

of course i just bypassed the Iphone5 for the S3..Im pretty satisfied so far.

haha I sometimes feel people decide to rip on apple just to rip on apple

It's kinda funny, I just did the opposite on the phone side of things. Had a samsung for 3 years and got an upgrade with Verizon...decided on the iphone this time over the s3.

Anyhoo, I'm leaning towards the Apple TV. I think it'd be cool to play video games again (last game I bought was in like 03') so that's why I'm thinking PS3 but the whole wireless HD mirroring seems way cool.

Apple's OS is great but the hardware is the cheapest crappiest poo around. Someone who wants a mac would be wise to buy a custom rig (which will be more powerful and much cheaper) and install OSX on it themselves.

They do not make superior products and they do not deal in high quality goods.

Of course there are 100 more reasons why Apple is terrible and if you want to know them then just google it.

I added an ApleTV to my home theater simply because I ended up with a credit at the Apple Store.

I dont like the way it buffers Netflix content as much as I like the way my XBox handles it but everything else about the device is superior to the XBox/TV/BluRay payer apps that do the same things.


If games are not the issue than Id go Apple TV.

Being able to just push stuff from my IPad/IPhone to the TV is pretty bad ass.
