I really can't see this selling.
Hrm. I just pre ordered. People don't realize how handy the Apple TV really is. If you are the type of person that keeps stuff on your computer, i.e. movies, music, podcasts, etc., it gets old watching on small screen a lot. A majority of my day at home is me busy but listening to music. I love the fact that I can walk around, stream music to or play from apple tv, over the entire house with airport express and the apple tv. other than the crappers.....i can walk through the entire house and not miss a beat while listening to music. All the while controlling it with the iphone in my pocket.
Now that this is only $99 I can put the old one in our bedroom and rent movies without having to sit in living room to watch.
I wonder if they are going to lower the price of airport express now? It can't remain $99 now.
