    I'm guessing there will be a spec bump right before christmas, together with the release of 1080p material on iTunes.

    Especially now that the AppleTV is available in most European countries, where the broadband isn't deadly slow and where most countries have unlimited data for the broadband connections. Thus making 1080p an actual option...

    I had 10/10 back in 1999 (I went from a 56.6k modem ;)) that cost me about 25 USD a month, so when I read about the average connections in the states it makes me a bit sad ;)

    If it stays at 99 dollars, gets jailbroken so it can have XBMC I will totally buy one to replace my atv2. Then I'll turn my atv2 into a low power wb server :)

    1080p and an internal hard drive again and I'm sold.

    Internal hard drive is the main reason I've not upgraded to the new one. Aside from not having the best luck with streaming, I don't want to have to plug in my external hard drive into my laptop each time I want to watch something, or even have to have my laptop present (i.e. housemates might want to watch something but can't if my laptop isn't there).

    My original Apple TV is on its last legs.. it's randomly been rebooting lately during watching.

    I'll buy it. I'm planning on getting an Apple TV for Netflix and I'm waiting for the next gen to come out. I can wait till Jan.
    On the other hand I will be sooo ticked off if Apple puts an A5 in the Apple TV but won't put one in the iPod Touch.

    Seems unlikely we will get this before christmas. Apple just had a event and usually they don't have one before the new year.

    I hope we get 1080p and an app store! :D

    That's what iCloud is for. They're not going back to an internal hard drive.
