    All the Apple TV's that we have in our homes just dropped in value. Lowering the price is a good thing for those that haven't bought one, yet but for those of us that already have many of these devices that we've paid $89 or $99 for, well thanks Apple.

    You make a thread complaining about a price drop & you don't even post the new lower price

    Dropping the price is actually a good thing. Considering it is an old product compared to its competition. Could also mean a newer hardware is coming out or... They are going to faze out the product line.

    I would have preferred new hardware, but why complain of a price drop? It's like 2-3 year old hardware..:rolleyes:

    Eventually prices drop. Might as well complain about the sun setting every evening.

    No, but it helps that the price is down. Now I'm thinking the replacement will be $169 or even less.

    Geez, who cares? I paid $89 for my first AppleTV, $75 for the second (refurb). I did not buy them as an "investment", I bought them to use. It shouldn't be a big news flash that prices on old technology drop.

    LOL, new to technology? Things get old and lose value. ProLifeTip, don't ever buy a car, or clothing, or a steak dinner to eat... because the value drops much faster than this AppleTV did.

    It's 3 years old, with several generations old CPU. WAY overdue a price drop.

    $69 makes it an even easier second TV addition.

    we have one AppleTV currently. it makes it easier to just add a second one now. Though, I might still hold off and buy a newer model down the road and move my current one to a second TV

    Apple has generally held its price points. I've got nine Apple TVs, three of them I bought this year… Yes, that's $90 that just went poof. It's not a huge deal but it's the point, I've always counted on Apple being a solid value. The price of the iPad hasn't went down. It's always held that value point, the iPhone… The same.

    I can only think that Apple TV is having sales issues which could be related to the fact that there hasn't been a new model released in years and now there's competition in the field.

    Was there no internal improvement?

    As opposed to the near $300.00 that went poof when you bought them?

    So did you think that they would appreciate in price while you were using them? Were they all investment grade Apple TV devices or just plane old consumer useable Apple TV devices? Your complaint here has no merit whatsoever, really.

    I was going to use my Apple TV to help finance my daughter's wedding one day (She's 4...and so cute!).

    Thanks a lot, Apple. :(

    Have you ever watched a Keynote before?

    I bet they had planned on announcing a newer/different model :apple:TV, but something happened at the last minute....

    Don't be surprised if there is an update before WWDC....
