That is what I meant by waiting, if no new one announced wednesday then I will make the decision with which one to go with.
Rumors are rumors but many of the MAC stores are out of them and not getting any shippings till next tuesday. Hint maybe ?
Mac rumor sites are an echo chamber for whatever rumor generates page views. If you read closely, there is zero evidence of an atv3 release. Everyone is just paroting the same rumors without ever claiming to have a source, not even an anonymous source The same rumor has turned out to be false many time in the past. Granted, it could be true this time. If they keep posting the same rumor, it will be true eventually.
If an atv3 is released, my bet is that it will output 1080p and that apples iTunes store will start offering 1080p material. To bring this back around to the topic at hand, this would likely mean Netflix 1080p support. Ironically, the ability of the atv to play 1080p netflix is likely completely dependent on if apple wants to also sell/rent 1080p video.
