    I have one of those dell widescreen monitors in my room and lately I've been using my powerbook to play music / dvds on it and it actually works very well. Got a simple 5.1 logitech speaker set up and I'm rather impressed with everything. Only thing I can think of that I need is a remote. Are there any usb adapters or rf thingies I can hook up and use something like the ATI remote? That would complete the package if so.

    thanks

    If you have a bluetooth phone, you can use Salling Clicker and a few scripts to remote control your Mac.
