Because it is the only Apple "thing" I do not have!

i need it
I need this so I can have an excuse to redo my whole entertainment setup. I have no HDMI in's or out's (everything is composite) so if I got the new Apple TV I would have to get a new reciever with HDMI built in. Then I would need to get a blu-ray player to replace the regular old DVD player I have. And then a new TV, cause the new blu-rays would look like crap on my 32 inch LCD. And if I get a bigger TV, I would need a new cabinet to put it on since the one I have is so small, so as you can tell, I really need this!!

I would love an Apple TV because...who wouldn't?!
I don't like downloading and storing content. I prefer to rent movies/TV shows. I usually only watch them once anyways. Every once in awhile there is a movie I know I want to watch and I will buy it, but that is rare. I was actually excited when I found out that Apple was lowering the price in lieu of more memory.
Also, I am excited to jailbreak and see what the genius-Dev Team and JB developers can make this thing do. "It'll change everything."

I need the new 2010 Apple TV because I would really love to be able to watch any TV show or movie in the iTunes store, and stream my extensive movie, music video, and song collection to my (not so) big screen and stereo system. I'm sort of a new Apple person, but quickly becoming a fanatic!

I would love an Apple TV because of the capability it has for me to sync my iTunes from my computer. I would have full use of my music with the Apple TV. Also, I would enjoy an Apple TV for use with Netflix. I do not own a game console and have been restricted to watching them on my computer. Taking advantage of that incentive would be great! Other than those reasons, it would be awesome just to own an Apple TV and would be excited to win this offer! Apple TV is great! Thanks TiPb!!!

I'd love an Apple TV as a college student, because the cable is bad quality and expensive for just a few channels. We always have tons of people over and watch movies a lot and with Netflix and cheap rentals and everything, we'd have a much bigger and better selection of movies. AirPlay would be pretty nice too so we don't have to haul our laptops all around the rooms.

I've subscribed to this blog for a while, but this is my first post in the forum! Hey everybody.
For me, the Apple TV is exciting! Netflix is enticing, as I now have to hook up my laptop to play on the big screen. But even more so, I like the possibility of dropping my cable. With the rumors of Hulu hovering around the Apple TV talk, I think it's a viable option. I'm so curious to see the impact this little box could have.
That's my reasons. Thanks.

I've had a Roku for a while, and for the first time I feel like apple has put out a TV product to not only compete, but also perhaps surpass Roku's great product. Netflix is great on the TV, but that's not really what sold me on Apple TV. What sold me is the airplay and iOS integration. The idea of being able to use my iPhone/iPad as a remote for the system is incredibly enticing, as the interface of the new apple "remote" app is slick. So bring on the AppleTV.

I really want the $0.99 rentals. I have a HTPC in the living room, but an Apple TV in the bedroom would be awesome!

My wife and I just found out we are pregnant (well she is ) ...I would use the Apple TV by using my Netflix Account, the TV Rentals and use it as a entertainment center. This would be awesome to watch cartoons and kid movies on so we wouldn't have to go to the movies all the time. Ever since my first iPhone I've been all about apple. iPhone (3 of them), 2 iPods, iPad, 2 Macbook Pro, Apple's router/hard drive, and other little things.
This would also be awesome if the wife is placed on bed-rest. (hopefully she won't be)

Why do I want it??? Cause I love little boxes that do cool things.

For my kids and wife
More entertainment choices for the 3yr old n 4 yr old. And more stay at home date nights for myself and my wife

While I would certainly love to have Apple TV for myself, that's not the reason why I'm entering this give away. Recently, my father lost his job. While he's been aggressively hunting for a new one, this hasn't been an easy task for him given the job market, and given that because he's nearly sixty years old a lot of companies are wary about hiring him over a younger candidate. As one would imagine, my parents have had to do a LOT of cost-cutting to survive financially. Now, keep in mind that my parents paid for my college education, and despite the fact that I have recently graduated, and am no longer living with them, those yearly tuition payments have taken their toll on their bank account. Now factor in that my Dad has lost his job...well...My parents have fallen on hard times. They've been doing a lot of things to attempt to save money, including selling the house that I grew up in. I honestly can't help but feel responsible in some way, that maybe if I had taken out loans for college rather than letting my dad pay then they'd be in a better place right now, and I really want to do SOMETHING for them to show them how appreciative I am of them, and of all of the help that they've given me, and that they continue to give me despite how hard things are for them. My dad's birthday is coming up, and I really want to give him something that will show my appreciation. Unfortunately, I'm not in the best financial place either, given that jobs in my field are virtually non-existent in the current economy. But if I won this drawing, and won that $100 gift certificate to get an Apple TV then I'd be able to give my dad the perfect gift...My parents have had to do away with a lot of the "creature comforts" that I took for granted growing up, so an Apple TV would really be a great way for them to relax and enjoy something nice without having to worry about how much they spent on it. While they've had to do away with their expensive cable package, they do still have a decent internet package, and they could definitely afford the cheap movie and TV rentals and they would absolutely LOVE the YouTube feature.
Anyhow, that's all I have to say I guess. Sorry for dumping all of my personal business onto you guys, I know that no one wants to hear it...but this would REALLY mean a lot to me, and more importantly to my parents.

I would like to get more into the Apple world. My iPhone 4 is my first Apple product besides owning a 2G for a month. And I love it! I am also looking at building a Media Server and am looking at options of allowing every room in the house to access the server. Apple TV might be perfect for that.

I need it because I do. Does grammar count?

$0.99 cent rentals would be awesome! Count me in!
