The original Apple TV was loved by many. It was hackable, fun and functional. But then Apple went and crashed the party with the new model. It lacks a lot of the selling points of the original like local storage, legecy outputs, and 3rd party support. So yeah, you may want to opt for the older model if you’re the type that’s never satisfied with out-of-the box features. CE Pro points out that it just dropped in price from $230 to $150. Good deal? I think so.
