What are you on about?
The AppleTV 3rd generation has nothing to do with limiting its inputs! Yes, you can AirPlay mirror screens from your iPhone and iPad...because that's a feature of the INDIVIDUAL DEVICES. I also have a MBP (first unibody, late '08) and an i7 iMac 27", and just got a mid-11 MacBook Air on Monday. But none of those devices ever said they would mirror when I bought them.
But take note--OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion will be released this summer, in just a few more weeks, and IT will have a new feature to mirror the display on your Mac to an APPLE TV, 2nd generation OR this newly announced AppleTV 3RD GENERATION.
So yes, it's coming, but it's a feature that's being added to your MAC software. It has NOTHING to do with what you so blithely call "another piece of trash"
Take note that AirPlay support being added to OS X 10.8 Mountain Lion to mirror your Mac's display via AppleTV will require a second generation iCore (i3, i5, i7, etc) Intel chip. It is essentially leveraging a technology developed by Intel called WiDi or Wireless Display. No other hardware will work. An example Mac released with the 2nd generation iCore chip are the 2010 iMacs.
