So, I've decided I would like to pick one of these gadgets up. What I would like to know is what ya'll think of it really.

Do you use it for showing your clients/presentation?
Do you like how easily it integrates into your presentation workflow?
Is it portable? I mean, if I want to go to a clients house and use their big screen tv, can I easily hook up the Apple TV (provided they have the right connections)?
What other things can I use it for regarding business?

I do have an iPad (O.G.) and I've loved showing my port on the iPad. So, I love the idea of how easily I can use Airplay to share iPad stuff to TV.

Any suggestions or advice or quirks or whatevs...I'm just curious how folks are using it, IF they're using it at all.

Thanks!

AppleTV is more for personal use I think. You could use it at your clients house or something but the time it takes to set it up, get the client to share their wifi password with you and then showcase whatever it is you got to show them then it seems, I dunno, not so professional. The ATV is more for you than anyone else so taking it to your clients for presentations/slidesho​w or whatever would probably be more of headache then anything else.

If you are wanting to mirror the iPad display to show your photos (I'm assuming photos since this is a photography forum) then the iPad Digital AV adapter might be more of interest to you since you can plug it into your iPad and then plug it into your clients tv (assuming they have an HDMI port) and do your slideshows that way. Really easy and virtually no setup involved.

You know you could also do the HDMI out adapter as well. I have done that a few times from my iPhone and it works pretty good.

Aaawwww....yes. I hadn't thought about using the a/v adapter, which I have for using at school when we have to do presentations. Here's my "duh" hat. Thanks guys!

Personal use it is then!
