Apple TV = $99 Mac Nano

post #1 of 4
Thread Starter 
Apple TV is just an iPad without a screen.

Apple TV is running iOS.

Apple TV has HDMI and bluetooth port.


Tomorrow it will be possible to turn it in a TRUE Mac Nano.

This kind of hack could boost sales by 20 or 30%... if not more

It won't be possible because it uses ARM chips not x86 so you can't run OS X on it like you could with the old x86 model, which used a Pentium chip. Plus it only has 8GB internal storage so you couldn't do much with it at all.

You might be able to run a VNC app so it would make for a neat thin client though.

When you've gotten access to the OS X source code and recompiled it to run on an ARM processor, you go right ahead and let me know.

Until then, in absolutely no way whatsoever is the new Apple TV a "Mac Nano".

OS X source code recompiled to run on ARM is precisely what iOS is.
