I have always thought that this was the most likely design concept for the Apple TV. It just wouldn't make sense for a firm like Apple to lock itself into a design that couldn't be regularly updated as technology improves. A screen with a separate box separating the screen from the electronics on the other hand would make much more sense

I would have thought that this would be EXACTLY what Apple wants? New version means the "must have latest" people would need to buy the new device thus making more profit...

I wish I'd have thought of this "Freestyle" concept.
Oh, wait a minute, I did! In May 2010 I commented on a story about WirelessHD, where I said manufacturers should create separate AV boxes and TV monitors. Two years later and Sharp have done just that.
I'm just waiting for Apple to retrospectively patent the idea and sue me.
Anyway, I'm going to keep an eye on this when it launches properly, as it's just what I've been waiting for.

No one buys a new TV every year. But they might buy regular updates of a separate and much cheaper electronic box on a regular basis while keeping the most expensive element, the screen. Or are you just one of those weird geeks who attacks everyone that buys Apple gear on websites like some rabid racist who has just spotted a foreign face (I am guessing that's what inspired 'must have latest' comment is about, as if everyone who buys Apple is an airhead 'fanboi' who has simply been duped into buying the latest fashion, rather than people who have made a rational choice based on good design). Is Apple an evil empire because it tries to make a profit? Do you really think Samsung, Google and Microsoft are giant benign not-for-profit charities who make electronics gear for the betterment of mankind?

not quite..... i have these TVs, like them very much. But the biggest problem is that you CANNOT plug HDMI sources into the box. HDMI must be plugged into the TV itself, only ONE HDMI port. Not quite as good as they sound, but great picture and very light! The 42 inch weighs just 8kg.
