    I've noticed that renting Toy Story 3 costs $3.99 from iTunes on my computer, but on the Apple TV and my iPhone, it costs $4.99. Why is that? I realize that a dollar isn't that big of a deal, but it has me curious.

    Usually on idevices if the have an hd screen it defaults to hd version. On the computer it's will be the sd version as the default.

    Hd rentals are normally $4.99

    Thanks. Can you not rent HD movies on your computer?

    Yes you can. But sometimes the HD version is available on the Apple TV and mobile devices but not on the computer.
