    Don't see why it would need it. The A4 chip can already handle 1080p.

    Probably. Once Apple markets it as a gaming machine.

    Yes it will come as the atv basically the same guts as the ipad, but i don't see it coming until the a4 chips dwindle, maybe we will see an upgrade once the ipad 3 comes out and skip it a5 chip.

    Maybe in 2012 if we're lucky. If Apple were to upgrade the Apple TV before then it would indicate that Apple is finally taking the home TV market very seriously which I kind of doubt will happen unless the content providers, movie and TV studios are also willing to go mainstream into distribution over the internet.
