    My house has 3 for every tv except my parents. My brother and I use it a lot to watch Netflix and I personally use it to stream movies/tv shows to the tv from my iPhone. Its already a great device and we don't need anymore, however if they release one that can have other types of apps (not just for watching things) then I'd buy the new one. I think the Apple TV is a great deal for anyone invested in the Apple ecosystem without a smart tv.

    i think you want it to be super fast and responsive when you're moving between menus and lists. I think one of the things Amazon did that i heard was great was the new processor made it fast. I don't have an apple tv but on my devices these things are noticable. Searching libraries of 25000 or 30000 music files on a hard drive things can get slow. or just searching or going from menu to menu. Not apple tv but an example is on my xbox 360 when using the youtube app it's quite common to click the button, think it didnt' register, then you click again, and it jumps back two screens. Like it's registering the click but not fast enough. I can see lag being an issue with older hardware.
    I don't experience menu-related lag with my 3rd generation ATV, but it understand what you're saying...

    I will hold out for a faster model. Why? Hoping they add turn it into a micro console and add a web browser. Also the current remote is crap.

    I already have two. But both are gen 2 which are still jail breakable. I've considered putting them up for sale and getting the newer models (even before today's announcement) because last time I checked gen 2 was selling for more than purchase price. But I've never gotten around to doing it.
    Since you have jailbroke Apple TVs. What do you get that is not available on a unjailbroke Apple TV3 in which I own.
