I'd rather just hook a real computer up to the screen. Wireless mice and keyboards aren't expensive.

Re: ChromeCast? Anyone have it?

For $35 it is definitely worth it.

I've always done the laptop hdmi to TV method and it's annoying. Even with the Unified Remote app (keyboard and mouse control) it's a pain, mainly because the app only works some of the time, and because it's a pain to always have to hook up the computer. A full keyboard mouse is overkill for Netflix anyways.

All I ever really watch is Netflix lately, and I use Google Music all access for music, so chromecast is perfect. Still waiting on it to ship from Amazon though. Ordered it evening of launch day.

I got one and really like it. I also have an AppleTV too but I find it easier to use the chromecast to watch youtube videos just by sending them through my Desktop. Also, I got 3 free months of Netflix so it really only cost me a few bucks. For $35 I don't think you can go wrong.
