Is anyone else finding all this a bit too much?

Yes, it is cool. Yes, I wouldn't mind having one. And yes, I have been sucked into all the posts so far.

But I mean come ON. "Apple TV Taken Apart." "Apple TV Instructions" "Apple TV Unboxing."

What comes next? "Apple TV is plugged in." "Apple TV placement on or near a TV set." "Apple TV used as a coaster." "Apple TV may open gateways to alternate dimensions."

Easier to open than the Mini! Let's see that come into the next iteration of the Mini. Also, that HD looks like it'll be a snap to replace.

Now that I think about it, this is the first time I have ever seen a large number of people excited about the dismantling of a product meant to be used in the living room.

This is because apple is dead silent on all other fronts hardwarewise. What a shame...

I'm not getting appletv. I can't see the use of it for the moment, really.

PATA instead of SATA

One of the advantages of SATA is small cable size. Apple used PATA because it fit, is cheaper and was not blocking any fans!

You may not be able to upgrade the HD unless you can make it bootable. I bet some of the OS is in the HD. I wonder what happens if somehow the HD is corrupted. Does that mean, the whole device is toast?
