If you haven't seen Chromecast yet, this little thing is pretty awesome for streaming pretty much anything from your mobile devices and tablets, as well as from a PC directly to your TV or receiver's HDMI port. This is the first I've seen it under $35

Is this an alternative to using Intel WiDi for external PC monitor at 1080P, or would the latency be too much?

This really wont work well as a widi alternative. The only local content that works since googles last update is casting a browser tab from chrome. Although you can open a video in that tab and play local videos that way. 720p streams nicely, havent tried 1080
