Slick Home Theater Uses MacBook as Digital Library

We personally only watch TV through the Mac Mini plugged into our flat screen. It's seriously the best way to watch anything. No cable bills, no limits to what the networks are airing right now, it's magical. Sébastien Robert has the same idea...

The French Mac nerd set up his home media center to run via his Macbook pro, connected to a Philips LCD sitting on a sweet red lacquered console that is similar to the Besta from Ikea Fly Furniture's SPACE cabinet unit. Macbook audio goes through a Ampli NAD C315 BEE amp and straight to the Micropod speakers flanking each side of the flat screen.

Sébastien runs the Plex Media Center, an application that lets you create a library with both content that's on your computer, shared libraries, and stuff you want to watch online.
