    AppleTv and Lion AirPlay
    Hey guys,

    I was wondering for those that have lion and used the new airplay feature to mirror there laptops display what effect there is on the CPU usage? Does it really push it hard or does it not even effect it? I would like to get an AppleTv for this feature but I do not want my computer having to run really hard with the fans going 100% and the computer at 200 degrees F. Thanks for the help.

    I can't say about Mountain Lion but I run Lion and this is a snapshot of CPU in Activity Monitor before and during playback of a movie (F.Dest 5) over ATV2.
