Hello neither my husband nor myself are particularly electronics-savvy. Currently we have a set up with a tv, that is connected to a dvd player, a video cassette player, a wii, and converter box+rabbit ears for regular tv. We also have a computer.
We were thinking of streamlining, and after getting a bigger screen for the computer, just use the computer for everything (computer/internet, audio, and tv). Has anyone done this or something similar? Downsides/upsides? For one it seems we would have to give up the video cassettes, and don't know if it is too limited to have 1 tv/computer for 2 adults and 2 kids. If so, I don't know if it is more optimal to still have a tv set up somewhere, or get a lower end laptop with internet access.
There are 4 people in the house. For the computer I use it for email, surfing the internet, and writing. Husband uses it for music, surfing, and playing computer games (not so much anymore). Kids watch some regular tv, some netflix and also use the tv with Wii. We are not big tv watchers but we turn it on most days. Probably the biggest demand for whatever we use, is watching netflix, and playing the Wii.
