    Streaming SPorts on Computers

    So, I am looking at new computers(laptops) because mine is 6 years old and dying. I want a computer so that I can stream MLBtv from my computer to my tv with a decent picture. Other than an HDMI port what should I be looking for? Does the video card matter at all?

    Also, if you see any deals and laptops let me know. I will be checking woot daily.

    Make sure it has a decent amount of memory. And a dedicated video card wouldn't hurt, that's for sure.

    Internet connection will be a bigger constraint on picture quality than your computer's graphics card. I would recommend getting one with dedicated graphics instead of an integrated chipset.

    Also, TigerDirect.com and Newegg.com often have deals on laptops.
