Yes the programs are available, but how can I seamlessly migrate the data from the PC to the Mac? A friend asked and I couldn't give him an answer. As for iPhoto, I think Picasa is a bit better and free. I really wish it was available for the Mac. Thank goodness I can use Parallels and get the best of both worlds.
It isn't so easy just to change. Say if you want to change from a PC to a Mac, you need new software along to go with your computer. Years of data - Quicken, Turbotax, Word and Excel files. Yeah there are Mac versions, but are the file really compatible on the Mac?
The idea of being able to play my music or movies here but not there just doesn't sound very appealing to me. I like just being able to put a DVD into the player and pressing play.
Also, I like letting my guest pick out a movie they like but I don't want them going onto my computer, even if it is just to pick a movie.
Get the movies you want - when you want to watch them... if you must have the movie immediately, must own movies, plan to replace every DVD player with a Appletv, have lots of hard disk space to store movies, and have high speed internet.
How many people are gonna keep Netflix and just rip the movie for Appletv?
