    Does anyone have an opinion if the Apple TV would ever be upgraded to include an SSD drive instead of a conventional hard drive?
    If Apple don't do it, will I be able to do it myself?

    that's interesting, thank you...

    I think I will wait a while until SSD's are 'standard' and a bit cheaper with better capacity. Might be a while, at least i now know it can be done...

    In theory it would load faster and run quieter.

    The ATV would probably be significantly cooler as well.

    Is it better to pull the power system out of the AppleTV, it would reduce the temperature

    Regarding the SSD I don't think it worths :D
