A reach here; but I am thinking an ATV2 coupled with the likes of the Mac Mini that is built on the basis of the instant on functionality of the MBA 2010 could be a hit. Or at least for myself.

I would like an instant on Mac box that I could have my iTunes library and iPhoto library attached to that gave me the ability to attach external HHD's for my libraries. Maybe a box that used my iPad to do keyboard entry, or browsing of email and the web.... Leaving me a separate desktop for more serious things like image editing.

Apple is moving to the cloud. They aren't going to start adding local storage to a product that they already removed it from....

While the cloud sounds good; but sounds like a poor choice for the consumer in the end. I have close to 1TB of just music/movies/photos - and I don't need or want total cloud access to it.

But my original idea was for a Mac mini based on the MBA. For myself I would like a beefed up ATV that can double as a simple computer as well.
