I know a lot of folks here are early adopters of technology so I'm wondering if anyone with a Chromecast could answer a few questions.

I understand it streams through a laptop, not independently. Does that mean you can't use your laptop for other stuff while using the chromecast?

How much of a hassle is it to change from one wifi network to another?

Does it play from Hulu (not HuluPlus)? What about Amazon Prime?

What is your general opinion of it? Quality, performance, ease of use, etc?
