    Hi,

    What size is the retail box on the latest AppleTV.

    I'm buying it as a gift, but the person it is for will be with me and I'm wondering if the retail box is as big as the one from the first (grey) AppleTV (which was a lot bigger than it needed to be as I recall) or is it just slightly bigger than the unit itself? Will it be very noticeable to my friend?

    Cheers.

    pretty much only slightly bigger

    the aTV just fits in the box, so the top is maybe 1/4" bigger on each side (2 layers of carboard)
    and tall it's got enough room for the aTV, remote, and a bit of paper.

    or google search for "apple TV unboxing"

    Thanks, waw74.

    I hadn't thought of does unboxing videos - never saw the point of them before but it was handy in this instance.

    Thanks.
