10 Reasons Why You Shouldn’t Get Apple TV Just Yet

by Juan on March 24th, 2007

Buzz has been high the last few days as Apple started shipping Apple TVs. While a lot of good has been said about the Apple TV, we also need to be objective. The people at iLounge are just that. So they wrote a piece stating 10 reasons why you shouldn’t jump on the bandwagon and buy yourself an Apple TV. Here are the reasons why.

10. You have a fifth-generation iPod with video and a $20 bill in your pocket.
9. You don’t have a high-definition TV, or don’t use one as your primary set.
8. You have a large movie collection that isn’t in one of Apple TV’s two supported formats.
7. The iTunes Store doesn’t sell movies or TV shows in your country, or there’s nothing you want to buy.
6. You want to protest Apple’s pricing and bundling policies.
5. Apple TV doesn’t have a DVR - or you already have one.
4. It doesn’t have a DVD or other hi-def disc player.
3. You’re budgeting for another Apple purchase, like a Mac mini.
2. You want to hold out for a version with higher resolution or more hard disk space.
1. You want to wait until the reality distortion field dies down.

Read the explanations and the complete article from iLounge here.

Frankly there are only three reasons why I don’t have an Apple TV just yet.

3. It’s not available here yet.
2. I don’t have an HDTV yet.
and finally…..

1. I just don’ t have the spare change yet.

Otherwise I’d be lining up to buy one now. Call me stupid or something, I’m just a sucker for all things Apple.
