The new model has slimmed down and is rumored to have slimmed its price down to $100 as opposed to the $230 currently charged. The differences between the two models are that the current version has 160GB hard drive, the new Apple iTV likely will not have a hard drive and will require a broadband connection. The video output on the new device would be 720p, and not the “full” High Definition of 1080p, which i find a disappointment but there are many people who wont notice the difference.
