new Apple TV (3rd gen, 2012)

Since the Apple TV 2 we received from Santa in Christmas 2010, Laurent and I have enjoyed the Apple TV very much. The brown box arrived yesterday.

It was announced at the same time as the announcement of the new iPad (3rd generation, 2012). Unfortunately, the new Apple TV, despite ordered the same time as the new iPad, did not arrive last Friday (as with the iPad). I guess Apple focused to deliver the iPad on the 16th March for those who ordered early enough.

What's so good about the new 3rd generation Apple TV?
1080p HDIt has the 1080p Full HD support! (2nd generation supports up to 720p.) To those like our friend Don who demand the best possible quality, 1080p is the highest picture quality in consumer TV (and BluRay), supporting 1080p is very important.

Under the hood, the main processor has been upgraded from Apple A4 to Apple A5 chip.

Or to make yourself easier to distinguish between them, the new Apple TV (3rd generation, 2012) has ā€œ1080pā€ clearly indicated on the side of the packaging.
