You could run Linux directly on the MacBook. People do it.

I have. If I had a MacBook I could have just created a patch-stick instead 
of disassembling the case. It went back together fine and looks good, It's 
just me that knows the rubber skin is now a little loose. There are great 
online instructions on hacking them.

Now I need someone with a Mac to compile MythTV for me. The version of 
MythFrontEnd that run on AppleTV don't get the remote commands. Apple 
changed how the commands are received between firmware versions.
