I was in the Apple TV store when the news broke that Apple was selling out of its newest model of the streaming box.
At that moment, I had to decide if I wanted to buy one of the new, $99 model that came with a 5K OLED display, an 8MP camera, and a new remote control.
But what if the device wasn’t going to get me the $99 price?
I decided to wait for my new model to arrive and then decide whether I wanted the added features and $200 price tag.
Here are the pros and cons of buying a new Apple TV from the retailer or from Apple itself.
Pros: The new model comes with a better camera, more processing power, and faster updates.
Cons: Apple’s retail stores are notoriously difficult to find, especially in the U.S. Pros are: Great-looking new OLED screen Pros are the only place you can buy Apple TV model #01.
Cons are: The Apple TV is still not widely available.
Pros have to be in stock at Apple’s flagship retail stores or online Apple stores.
