  • Those who purchase and watch television shows, movies, and music videos through iTunes are no longer tied to their 20-inch computer monitors or 2.5-inch iPod screens. The Apple TV allows iTunes users to watch content from their iTunes library on a widescreen television.

    To find out if this experience was really worth $299 and find out what was inside this Apple device, we purchased an Apple TV. Before cracking open the case, we gave it a test run.

  • I ordered this Apple TV on January 19, 2007 along with a set of HDMI cables. After a month-long delay, Apple shipped the unit on March 20, and it finally reached us two days later.
