There's a lot to mull over: you have to consider latency, the 720p limitation, being stuck with Intel HD graphics, buying the wireless box for your television, and maybe the biggest question of all, whether or not it's really practical. WiDi has resulted in a split decision here; Vivek is a big fan of it, but I have a hard time understanding why someone would deal with all these limitations instead of just plugging in a five dollar HDMI cable and calling it a day."</em></p><p><img src="http://images.thoughtsmedia.com/resizer/thumbs/size/600/wpt/auto/1288985938.usr11334.jpg" style="border: #d2d2bb 1px solid;" /></p><p>If you're looking to wirelessly hook up your HD source to your TV to stream 1080p content without hooking up an HDMI cable, then the Asus WiCast is an option.&nbsp; As a technology it's great it seems to work well,&nbsp;so long as you are not simply trying to hook up a device thats located within an HDMI cable's reach of the TV, in which case you'd just be making it&nbsp;far more complicated.</p>
