32" Magnavox LCD (great flat-screen for $600, digital tuner does its job and analog tuner puts out a nice clean signal. Highly recommend it!)
Mac Mini for DVD & multimedia (DVI>HDMI cable puts out a decent image, mini-toslink to toslink for dolby 5.1)
Crappy Samsung home theatre surround sound set, hoping to upgrade to JBL's when I have the $ to spend.

bluetooth mouse/keyboard + apple remote & front row make it very easy.
