    I didn't see ATV on the list for last year's sales events.

    I was wondering if anyone knows of any place that might have it for a discount (even a small one) from the regular price?

    It was just the 160GB model on sale Friday, right?

    I might've bit had the cheapest one been on sale since I stream everything from a networked drive. But I think I'm in a holding pattern until I figure out how awesome Netflix really is. I like watching streaming stuff on my laptop (external 20" monitor!) and I'd like to do it as easily on a TV. But I have tried to hook up my computer to TVs before only to have extremely crappy video. If I could ever figure that out, I would really just like to buy an old Intel Mac Mini on eBay and use it with the TV.

    No, the 40GB was on sale as well. Their webpage only showed the 160GB, but if you went took a look at pricing, the 40GB had the same discount.

    I managed to pick up a 160gb refurb for £189 (retail £269). It's definitely the way to go. I got a refurb MacBook a year ago and had no complaints and saved £200+. You do need to check every day and if you see one you want just get it as they go quick . All I need to do now is how to figure out streaming the BBC iplayer through and I will be laughing
