    It depends. Personally, I wouldn't mind one, being able to save and screen capture some of my favourite programs and movies, rent movies, use AirPlay amongst my many Apple devices and stream YouTube, it seems like a good investment. But there are cheaper and/or more practical methods of doing all of these things.

    Cheaper than $99? I have not found one ~ not for what I want. I wanted to stream movies from Netflix to our TV. ATV is cheaper than Ps2, Wii and Xbox and the device that Netfix offers....I think.

    That is all I know that I want to do. I am getting it soon and am still reading up on what else we will be able to do.

    Hmm, I sense a jailbreak coming on!

    I'm ordering my ATV this week.

    So not fair, Gab. We have a friend who works at Apple and we are getting it for $65, I was pleased with that offer! I don't know if I will JB that....

    I barely play with my JB on my iPad ~ but I love customizing the screens a lot.

    We can get that for $200 off, but still that like what...$900? My daughter wants that so bad, or maybe it is the MacBook Pro...

    Hell ~ I no clue! Whatever one is best for college students. Sac State has them everywhere!

    OT - Blimey, that's like half price......I've just posted you my credit card!

    On topic - I'll try to stick up a mini review when my ATV arrives!

    I'll try to stay on topic now (but I do get carried away sometimes!).
