AppleTV or Roku XDS?

in iPod + iTunes + AppleTV edited January 2014
I am wondering whether to purchase the AppleTV or Roku XDS. Help me decide. How much of a limitation is AppleTV's 720p output?

    I hardly notice the difference between 720 and 1080 on a 46" screen.

    If you have a 60" screen, it might be a huge limitation.

    How much of the CONTENT available on the Roku is actually 1080? (I have no idea.) If you're only getting upscaled 720p (or even 480p) content, I doubt the 1080p output is really that much of an advantage.

    If 720 v 1080 is the only thing that bothers you, I'd think it would be dependent on your screen size and personal visual acuity.
