What happens if you have a old version of a apple product and it breaksdown?

    I have the previous version of the Apple TV I have not bought Applecare for it yet and now I don't know if I should because my version of the Apple TV is no longer sold so if my Apple tv was under applecare and broke down would Apple replace it with a old model or one of the new ones?

    I don't like the new one as here in the UK it is next to useless so if Apple replaces faulty discontinued products with new ones I would rather leave it and when it gives up the ghost get myself a mac mini instead.

    They will replace it with the old model. Whenever something breaks and is covered by applecare it is replaced with the exact same thing.

    They'll have plenty of them for a while.

    'Course, a few years back I had the first TiBook released (400Mhz) and after sending it in for repair 8 times they upgraded me to an 800Mhz one with a bigger HD, more RAM and a SuperDrive. So I always hope that'll happen again whenever I need to go to the Genius Bar. ;)

    Assuming your old ATV is still under warrenty then Apple will repair it or replace it with a refurbished unit of the same model as your old one.
