If you’re in the market for a small, yet powerful, lightweight computer that you can easily travel with, then Sony’s Vaio T Series Ultrabook Laptop might be worth a look.
HDMI is pretty much entrenched as the A/V standard, and is on virtually every screen nowadays. There are other interfaces that get as high a resolution such as DVI and DisplayPort, but HDMI is pretty popular for it’s “one cable” ease of use for audio and video as well as it having what the industry loves to put on the video content — HDCP (High Definition Copy Protection, for that digital handshake of authenticity).
You’ve got a 15-inch screen on your laptop computer, sitting on your coffee table. Three metres away, you’ve got a 46-inch screen on your fancy HDTV. Wouldn’t it be great to watch those YouTube videos of surprised kittens on the big screen instead of the little one?
There are several ways of doing this, but most require either a certain amount of technical know-how or physically attaching a cable from your computer to your TV. The Warpia Wireless USB PC to TV adapter ($129.99 via www.ncix.com) provides an easy way of wirelessly beaming any image from your computer screen to your HDTV screen.
