    I know a few months ago, apple dropped the price of the appleTV to $89 and it could be had at that price through best buy or amazon but, it looks like the price is back up to $99.

    Does anyone know where I can still get it for the $89 price?

    If you can't afford one for $99, maybe you just can't afford one!
    We're talking about a difference of 5 or 10 bucks here..

    This is almost a sure bet. Out of stock is only temporary.

    I just picked up a "used" one that was opened in the box on Amazon Warehouse for $70. Got the unit and it is in perfect shape. I would keep my eye out there.

    Take care of the pennies and the pounds will take care of themselve.

    Honestly, check Craigslist. Tons of people buy them thinking they'll do things they won't, or they end up using other devices to do their streaming (PS3, Xbox, etc)... so they're willing to part with them for very reasonable prices. I picked up an ATV2 last month for $75, and it came with an HDMI cable and a full year remaining of AppleCare.

    Definitely worth a look - you may have to hunt a bit for a decent deal, but if the need isn't urgent it's a great option.

    I did this, too. The one I received had more than half a year of AppleCare left.

    I would generally agree, but in this case there may be other reasons. I'm looking to pick one up my self on the cheap so I can experiment with it. I want to see if I can truly use this to run programs like Plex, XMBC, icefilms, ect... and really don't want to waste the money if it doesn't work the way I want it to work.

    If experimenting is what you have in mind, then I would pick one up at BestBuy. I have purchased and returned ATV and ATV2 multiple times in the past without restocking fee.

    I would always verify prior to opening the box though, you can never be too careful with BB.
