I have the latest Mac Mini with HDMI 1080p output that allows you to connect this mini computer to an LCD TV via an HDMI cable and watch content from your computer through your television. What would be the difference in quality between watching a regular DVD on an LCD television or that same movie on Amazon VOD, Netflix, YouTube etc on your computer connected to an LCD tv? Would it replace buying DVDs?

If you're okay with settling for DVD quality video, but subpar audio, you can get by with Netflix and similiar services. Amazon, Netflix, and such tend to offer limited audio options. Most of the time you're not getting the best audio feed into your home theater system. If you want HD quality, online streaming isn't there yet.

i think there is a strong difference between the lcd tv and a monocrom because the lcd tv have a high clarity of output

But if you aren't concerend abotu surround sound or anything Netflix through a TV sounds perfectly fine through your TV speakers. Recommend.
