    oh and I just found out I ordered an ATA hdd instead of a SATA :o

    I thought you had to push really hard to get it in there like the RAM, turns out its the wrong one.

    well at first I had fiddled with the settings and had set it to "movie" mode and everything was aliased. But I changed it back to standard, calibrated it for colours and brightness and its fantastic. I can't really compare to other large LCD monitors but this thing has everything.
    DVI, VGA, Compononent, HDMI, S-Video, Composite
    Swivel and rotating screen
    1080p

    tons of other shit.

    I'd like to connect my girlfriend's Mac Book to the HDTV- is there an easy way to do that like for a PC?
