    New iPad hdmi connector
    Hi all

    I'm contemplating either to buy the apple tv for AirPlay with my new iPad (can I connect my 2010 MacBook pro to it") or should I just buy a hdmi connector and hdmi lead? If I go for the connector can anyone recommend a good one as on amazon they have very mixed reviews


    Thanks

    You can't airplay a 2010 MBP out-of-the-box but you can get AirParrot which allows you to mirror your MBP to your TV over AirPlay via an AppleTV.

    If you go down the cable route I'd get the genuine Apple adaptor and a generic HDMI lead.
    Not been around these parts for a while. Trying to change that . .

    Thanks mrplow

    Do you think it's worth getting the apple tv over the connector

    All depends on your preference really.

    I use my AppleTV for Netflix, photos, AirPlay. But one of the biggest bonuses is that others can use the AppleTV when i'm elsewhere with my iPad

    True for movie watching, photos and games it would be a lot easier as I wouldn't be limited with the hdmi cable plus I can hook my MacBook up with that application you said.

    Thanks
