    gadget people...

    so... I'm looking for something & I don't know if it exists. Anyone know of a gadget that can display a photo slideshow on a HDTV at a full 1080p res? I'm not looking for a full-bore media center pc, but rather something portable like this w/ a HDMI or component video output. All I need it for is a somewhat eloquent presentation of photos on a big TV. I don't care if it has a hard disk inside or if it uses removable flash memory.

    This is the closest thing I've found so far... but something more portable would be ideal.

    Thanks

    Stupid question, but I'm assuming you can't take your mac laptop with you right?

        well, I could, but it's an old (circa '02) powerbook G4 w/ a dead LCD (works w/ an extra monitor fine; yes, it's ghetto). my "real" mac (powermac G5) isn't portable. I'm just thinking something smaller & lighter... like an ipod... but w/ support for 1080p output.

        interesting... haven't seen that. thanks. looks like it's primarily for video & I don't see specs on the photo output, but will dig around their site & forums a little more.

          Like I have room to talk about ghetto...I've told you 'bout the falls mine's taken and how I have to have the power connector in just the "right" spot to charge/power it....LOL...and it's only 3yrs old next month....One reason I REALLY like what they did with the new magnetic connectors....AHHHH....I can dream about my next one, right? Nonetheless...yeah, your's would be tough to take portable w/the dead LCD...HMMM...well...off the top of my head I don't know of anything, but I'll keep an eye out and ask a couple techie people I know, see if they know of anything...

              no problem, anytime

              aren't they? I wish we could retrofit ours...that would SOOOOO ROCK! a new computer w/the magnetic connector is on my wish list....BUT a reliable vehicle(ie:Honda Element) is higher on the necesity list...details, minor details....

                  yeah, the Archos TV+ might do it, but again, is more video oriented.

                  I should just get a Mac Mini & a DVI-HDMI conversion cable. Front Row does what I need. Maybe this rumored subnotebook of theirs will have something cool too.

                  This isn't an immediate need, so I'll keep doing research on it.

                    hmm... this could be a potential winner for $199 providing I could find a way to get 1080p video output...

                    not really as portable as I initially asked, but dirt cheap, decent asthetics, & could fit in a bag if needed.

                      The 720p of the Apple Tv would not be enough?
