Ars Technica: Apple Vision Pro can replace your TV; great for watching movies

Friday February 9, 2024. 05:45 PM , from Mac Daily News
Watching “Masters of the Air” with Apple Vision Pro
Can the Apple Vision Pro spatial computer replace your TV? Ars Technica tried Apple’s $3,500 (to start) device and found out that, yes, it can.
Samuel Axon for Ars Technica:

With TV and movie viewing, we’ve started with an easy win before we start getting into the gnarlier questions. I don’t think it’s a coincidence that Apple’s in-store demos of Vision Pro put a lot of emphasis on watching 2D and 3D content passively because it’s the most obvious thing the Vision Pro can do better than any other portable device out there.
It doesn’t quite match my robust home theater setup with a 65-inch LG OLED, fine-tunable colored lights and lighting sensors, and an Atmos-enabled array of Sonos speakers, but that makes sense. As pricey as Vision Pro is, the totality of that home theater setup that I’ve assembled in multiple steps over a few years is still a little bit more expensive, and the home theater is also more specialized. The Vision Pro can do a lot of things my home theater can’t, too.
The Vision Pro provides a better movie-viewing experience than most people have at home—even some people who have put some thought and money into their setups. It’s miles ahead of anything I’ve found in hotel or Airbnb rooms. I haven’t used it on an airplane yet, but I’m excited to; I have no doubt it’ll be great.

MacDailyNews Take: The money saved on displays alone makes Apple Vision Pro easily worth the price of admission!
