    iPad to replace AppleTV?
    Can the iPad be a suitable replacement for an Apple TV with the VGA connector? I would like to be able to view the movies and listen to the music in my itunes, but if I get a new apple device, I would like it to replace my apple TV.

    If you can fit all that onto your iPad sure, but the Apple TV has a much bigger capacity and better connections to hook it up to a TV.

    The iPad I don't think is really meant to be an "Apple TV" replacement if you're really looking for the functionality of an Apple TV.

    I suppose it could be a replacement, if you have a relatively small amount of movies/TV shows.

    Not to mention you won't have a remote like you do with the AppleTV

    You can use your iPad as a monitor... if you are running Mac OSX.
