    Question Why such small hard drive?

    Why does the AppleTV have such a small hard drive? Is it this way so they can make a bigger and more bad ass model in the future? Does anyone know? Please let me know if you do.

    yea this didn't make much sense to me at first either. I mean my iPod holds 2x more than the TV. But then I began to recall how things were when the original iPods were rolling out.

    There were no alternate colors, one fixed hard drive size, and that was about it. However, after realizing the success of the iPod franchise they have expanded to multiple versions, multiple hard drive sizes, multiple colors.

    I believe that in the future they will go in one of two ways:
    1. They will go the way of the iPod and offer different fixed scenarios.
    2. They will go the way of the Mac Mini, possibly killing off the mini, and allow the TV to be customized by the person purchasing the device.

    Just my 2ยข

    I asked the same questions when i first heart the specs...today 120gb hd is small...but i guess like webdaemon said...they will come out with another version soon with better specs...apple is known for this...minor changes and its a brand new product
    diff versiobns of ipods.
    Before you ask any question, try searching it first.
    Search Button is ur best friend...so is google.

    I AM IN NO WAY TELLING YOU TO COMMIT PIRACY. IF YOU LIKE OS X OR ANY PART OF IT. BUY A MAC.
    TESTING 4 PCs and 1 Macbook . Only the macbook works perfectly .

    If any members post has helped you...add to their rep.

    You can put a 160GB ATA laptop drive very easy.
    I did this super easy.
    You can also boot to a 750GB to USB external drive.
