Apple TV

Do any of you have Apple TV? Pros, cons?

I have some airline miles I have to burn through and Apple TV is one of the things on the list. I have a PS3 in which I watch Netflix, Hulu, VUDU, etc... Will the Apple TV serve a better function than that? Let's try to stay on topic for at least the first 3 responses.

Apple TV should be smoother.

That's all I have.

Okay, it's been three posts, so, my wife went shopping to get out of the house, bought $176 of things that weren't on the list, and got nothing on the list, so she needs to go back and spend another $80 today. And she wonders why we can't afford a bigger house...

I believe if 1080p is important to you, the Apple TV, with 720p max, will be a "downgrade" from PS3.

That's a deal breaker. I never thought to check that spec assuming it would be 1080i/1080p. Oh well.
