external monitor vs TV?


Recommended Posts

Yeah, it totally depends on what you're trying to do. If you're only going to be watching at your desk (which it seems like bc you said a small monitor) then just go with HDMI. It's easy to just plug in and mirror your display. If you're using it in a bigger room, go with Apple TV and Airplay. 


I personally have both. In my room I have a 27" HDMI monitor I hook up to my MBP for when I'm working, and in our living room the TV is hooked up to an Apple TV, so if I want to watch TV and be on my laptop on the couch I can do that too. It's also better since I don't have to worry about a cable going all the way across the room from the TV.

yeah, i'd just be using it to watch torrented stuff in my room really; i have an older LCD monitor but unfortunately it doesn't have HDMI. i guess i still don't really 'get' apple tv, it's just used to wirelessly stream stuff from your mac right? i haven't owned a tv in almost a decade, i'm worried i'll be tempted to buy a ps4 if i get one now haha.
