AppleTV 320GB Upgrade

Introduced in Jan. 2007, the AppleTV is still going strong over 2 1/2 years later. While the hardware hasn’t seen any changes yet, the software has slowly but surely been getting better and better.

I’ve had mine since March 2007 and use it every day. Each software update has really improved the platform and the new Remote app interface is awesome. The QWERTY keyboard control makes searching so much easier.

Every time Apple releases a new AppleTV update, we see an increase in the number of AppleTVs in for hard drive upgrades. The 320GB is by far the most popular.

Outside of 1080p and a SATA interface (so we can put 500GB drives in) there’s not much hardware-wise I want to see in a new AppleTV. Most of what I want (more movies, better Hulu integration, and more audio options) can all be accomplished with new software.

Here’s hoping we don’t have to wait too long.
