Would love to go and buy it but the wifey wont let me. Have almost all things apple and would probably use the airplay feature the most.

I want it because I am in the process of converting my family into an Apple Family. I have successfully turned my Sister and Father to the Apple Life. The Apple TV will make my mom become a part of the new family after she sees how innovative Apple products are, how sexy they look, and how efficient they execute what they are said to do.

Having just graduated, for a start anything free is a bonus. Apple and free? Double bonus. The Matte Black matches my Le Creuset mug? Even better.
However, my slightly obscure, very specific reason is to help with my workflow as a film/TV music composer and animator. The idea of completing an animation project or score and being able to view/hear it almost instantly, seamlessly on my good TV (when compared with my CRT monitor, at least...) in surround sound(!!!) is an amazing thought. Currently, I have no way of viewing it on good TV, as any method of streaming via computer consoles are a ball-ache.
Coupled with the fact that I'm an Apple ***** (like most in this forum), this device would feel right at home in my house...!

Well, I DO have to have every iOS device, but I want the Apple TV because of the apps. Think of what kind of app usage you could have! Netflix will be sweet, plus wireless streaming of all my content... I've been waiting for this one.

I need one because I LOVE Apple products, and the Apple TV would be cool to have! I can move my Mac Mini currently serving as my media center into my office and stream content from it to the Apple TV.
And then there's Netflix!
Yeah, I definitely need an Apple TV!

If it were a DVR I would be all over it, 'cause Tivos have this habit of crashing and taking five minutes to reboot, and I'm tired of getting replacements that still suck. As it is, I would dearly love to get $100 Steve Bucks, but I wouldn't spend them on the apple tv. Doesn't do anything I can't already do.

I would LOVE an Apple TV because our 2 year old twins love watching Angelina the Ballerina on Netflix. Plus, I need to have all iOS devices and AppleTV is one iOS device I don't have yet... =)

I want it because I love all Apple gadgets. I have 4 and 6 year olds so it would come in handy. Plus, I have an original Apple TV. It is the only Apple product I regret buying. Would love to see how much better Apple has made this product, but don't think I'll buy one given my experience with the original.

So here is the deal. As most of us TiPb readers did, I heard about a possible new Apple TV a few couple of months before the actual release. In preparation, I sold my 40GB first generation Apple TV on eBay for approximately $120. Not bad right? Obviously the person who purchase my Apple TV did not do their homework and had no idea of a possible new Apple TV. Sure enough, the day after it is announced I get an email from PayPal requesting a refund because supposedly my Apple TV was not working as described (supposedly the hard drive is dead. This is after he left positive feedback on eBay by the way...) Naturally I denied the request for a refund because it is obvious that the buyer wants his money back to buy the newer, cheaper Apple TV. The situation was escalated to the higher-ups at PayPal and I just learned the other day that they ruled in his favor.
So not only do I have to refund the $120 but I am going to receive a broken Apple TV which previously was working perfectly. Boo-hoo I know.
That is whey I want Apple TV 2.0. Pick me, Pick me.

I really would like to have this for my son to stream everything to my Tv for him. He is homeschooled because he has severe food allergies and can not go to a public school. This way all my iOS devices could stream content for him while he's home. Also our family is pro Apple for life!!!

I have the previous generation AppleTV, and while I loved it, it was also plagued with issues. Performance and content flexibility were severely lacking. Today's current revision has much improved performance, and the potential for flexibility with jailbreaking or perhaps even apple sanctioned 3rd party apps at some point in the future make this device a promising and exciting upgrade!
