    Bought a 40 GB refurb the day after take two announced. I am very pleased, the refurb is super cheap and I can't wait for the update. FedEx says mine should arrive Monday. It'll be interesting to try it out pre and post update.

    I picked one up at the SoHo store in New York. I got the 40GB too, since I'll just be streaming from it. Love it so far, and can't wait for the update and the forum posts on ripping with 5.1.

    I bought a 160 GB Apple TV on the day of the ATV2 announcement. I already had a 40 GB in my family room, but I wanted another one for the living room upstairs, especially now that rentals are coming. I prefer the bigger drive so that I can sync everything from my main computer and don't have to worry about having the computer on and iTunes open.

    I ordered an 40GB refurb right after ATV Take 2 was announced. 'Just did some research first to confirm that hardware is the same. Got it Friday and enjoying it already; will enjoy it even more once the upgrade software comes...:)

    Haven't actually bought it yet (waiting for vacation pay), but DECIDED to buy it just after Take 2 was announced.

    Should have it next week.

    Going to get the 40GB and mostly stream form my iMac.

    Bought one on Stevenote day as well. The 160GB model. I like it a lot but would like it more if TV shows could be purchased in HD. Especially LOST.

    So if I ordered an Apple TV 40gb yesterday will I receive the new box or old one? Any difference outside of the packaging and software that would be a difference?

    I bought one last week at the local Apple store and got a 8% discount for being a business owner. :D

    Get this:

    I ordered a 40gb refurb last tuesday(day of Stevenote) it arrived on Thursday. Awesome right? Well it gets better. Even though I ordered and paid for a refurb($199+tax), they sent me a brand new TV! It came in full retail packaging unlike refurbs that come in plain brown boxes. I am loving the TV! It is definitely one of my favorite Apple products. I can't wait for the update next week.

    went to the local Apple store and picked a 160GB one up today. Using component video as my tv only has one HDMI port and my cable box is using it. Very impressed with it so far: picture quality is great (my tv is only 720p) and it was dead easy to set up. wish I'd got one earlier now :)

    Ordered a new 40GB model yesterday.

    (my company has an employee discount with Apple which doesn't apply to refurbished items, and the difference between discounted-new and refurbished wasn't worth it to me)
