    I can now view the internet on my 32" HDTV. I bought a 50 foot VGA cable and a USB keyboard and a 15 foot USB extension cable. I also already have a USB port connected to my mouse. So now I can be on the internet while lying down in bed. The only thing I need my laptop for is to insert a CD or DVD. The VGA on the TV only shows on 4:3 ratio (not widescreen) , but it is fine and I can read the print from where I am.

    I'm Jealous. :(
    I have a 20 inch HDTV and have yet to hook my MacBook up to it. But I plan to work out something over the summer - installing yellowdog linux, musicpd, and a few other goodies on an older ibook and have a total lay on sofa home entertainment experience. :)

    Cool, i just found out that it does work in widescreen. Everything is stretched out, but I am gonna play and keep the Google sidebar in place.

    I just have to switch to non widescreen to view videos correctly.
