Apple is now taking pre-orders on the new, 4th-generation Apple TV. But should you buy it? The streaming media player is available in two configurations: 32GB or 64GB, selling for $149 and $199, respectively. Apple suggests if you plan to stream most of your movies and TV shows the 32GB should be sufficient, but if you plan on downloading content, playing games, and using lots of apps the 64GB model would be a better choice. The device is available to order online at Apple.com or over the phone with an Apple Store representative. Online, the Apple store upsells AppleCare Protection for $29 (2-year), HDMI-to-HDMI cables (1.8m/6ft) for $19 (which isn’t an outrageous price), and iTunes Gift Cards for buying movies, TV shows, etc. The pre-orders taken today are expected to arrive between Oct. 30th and Nov. 3rd with the fastest delivery, or November 2 to Nov. 4 with free shipping. Apple.com is the only place you’ll find the new Apple TV right now, as Best Buy, Target, and other retailers are not taking pre-orders. Neither is Amazon, where the player will not be sold at any time in the near future.
