>>I guess one final option would be to just put that computer IN the media loft and call it a day. I used to have it connected to my TV in the living room but then my roomie needed it for work and so I put it in the office. She only uses it once in awhile to do a few things she couldn't do on her own laptop, so worst case she can just use it on the 32" LCD which would be super clear. Hmmm I might have my solution!
If she doesn't like to use the 32" LCD, she can remote login to your Lenovo ThinkCentre pc by using "Remote Desktop Connection" from her laptop.
