View Full Version : Apple TV: Not Really That Hot

Feb 11, 2008, 01:18 PM
So I heard all these rumors before I bought the ATV that you could fry an egg on it it was so hot! I had all these fears of the unit buring a mark into my shelf or being dangerous to touch after use.

Well, I just watched my first iTunes movie on the thing yesterday, touched it right afterward out of curiosity, and it really wasn't that hot. I'd compare it to touching a warm plate from when unloading a dishwasher.

Have people really gotten the ATV that steaming before or were the rumors simply exaggeration?

Exaggeration? Here? ;)

Mine's been fine - warm and cozy. Always seemed pretty normal to me, considering packaging and how quiet it is. (new 250GB WD too)
