    If we're all able to sync youtube or iMovie to Apple TV like they say so, what's the point of burning to a superdrive? You can always just upload your video on youtube and watch it, or sync your new movie to iTunes and let it go to your apple TV. What's the point of a superdrive when you can watch your movies on a TV anyways?

    Erm, unless something changed recently, YouTube is not exactly HD.

    Because my family members that I want to send family videos to don't have AppleTV's (and some don't even have broadband)?

    While aTV and iMovies won't make the SuperDrive useless, it does open up a few more ways to get your videos onto your TV.

    I like the idea of editing movies in iMovie and having the aTV sync (or stream) them to my HDTV in the family room. For one thing, the quality should be much better .... wait, can the aTV play iMovie files/packages? Or would I need to export them into a different file type?
