Apple first introduced the Apple TV last year when it was originally known under the code name “iTV”. Back then, very little information is available about the device except that it was Apple’s first foray into the home living room space.
But guess what, now this awesome looking television Apple TV is in Malaysia! I am not sure if this is available at other gadget stores, such as those at Low Yat, but at least CG Computers is retailing it at RM1,299.
The price doesn’t look very expensive, it’s even cheaper than a 32″ LCD TV nowadays, which costs about RM3.5k. So, for less than RM5k, you can happily bring a high definition LCD TV and an Apple TV home today!
Apple TV is a media extender manufactured by Apple. It is a network device designed to play digital content originating from any Mac OS X or Windows computer running iTunes onto an enhanced-definition or high-definition widescreen television. Apple TV can function as either a home theater-connected iPod device or a digital media receiver, depending on the needs of the user.
I will buy mine, after I have bought iPod and subscribed to iTunes.
