What do I need Apple TV for if I am able to simply connect my laptop or mobile device to my television monitor and view content in that manner?

  • Wireless is SO much easier.

    And hopefully noone will STEP on your laptop while it's over there. And I hope you don't have to use the laptop for anything else during that time, unless you enjoy using it in its new non-laptop position. And hopefully you have a second power cord over by the TV. And a spare HDMI cable layout around.

    Etc. Etc.

    But no, you don't NEED an Apple TV. It's just SO much easier having one than not.
