    Looking at getting another Apple TV. Is there any real difference between the third generation models A1427 and A1469?

    Is there any speed differences or anything? Has anybody got both models that they can compare with?

    Thanks

    Newer one uses marginally less power. Wifi might be a little worse with the new one ( early reports of issues that probably have been sorted out). Overall no reason to pass one up for the other.

    Thanks for that. Newer one worse maybe WiFi oh...

    It's just bidding on some on eBay but Apple refurb have the older ones so was wondering. No speed diff between them then, same CPU?

    CPU is roughly the same. Same speed and same capabilities, just built on a smaller transistor process. As for the wifi, I don't use it so my comment was only because initial reports states there was some issues. I really haven't followed that issue (or non-issue)
