Apple TV poll ends, new Apple product poll begins

With over 3,300 votes from iLounge readers, our latest poll—“Will you buy an Apple TV if it runs App Store apps?”—has ended. Readers could choose from three positive responses, one requiring 32GB or more of storage, one requiring a lower price point, and one requiring both, as well as a pair of negative responses for readers who either do or do not own an Apple TV.

More than four in ten—42%—of readers said they wouldn’t buy an Apple TV if it ran App Store apps even though they don’t already own one. This group was followed by a 19% share of readers who said they would buy one but only if it included 32GB or more of built-in storage for a lower price, 15% who said they would buy an app-running Apple TV but only if was cheaper, and 14% who would buy but only if it offered 32GB or more of built-in storage. Finally, 10% said they wouldn’t buy an app-enabled Apple TV, although they already own the first-generation model. Thanks for all your votes!

Our new poll focuses on Apple’s just-announced products. We’d like to know which one you’re most interested in. Are you eyeing the fourth-generation iPod touch, or perhaps the sixth-generation iPod nano? Or are you interested in the fourth-generation iPod shuffle, or maybe the second-generation Apple TV? Or are you not interested in any of the new models? Our new poll, “Which just-announced Apple product are you most interested in?” lets you answer that question. You can find the iLounge Poll in the left-hand column of the main home page. Cast your vote today!

Since I voted with my wallet yesterday, I answered I was most interested in the new touches. The shuffle fills no niche in this household, nor does the new nano. The Apple TV actually, with its $99 price point, just might become a fit for the household in the next year or two depending on what sort of content deals come out.

Initially I had no interest in ATV, but the 2G model gives me a great (and cheap) solution to get Netflix streamed upstairs. My DVD player and TV will stream Netflix, but they have no built-in wi-fi so I’d need a wireless access point. For not much more than the cost of a WAP, I can put a 2G ATV upstairs to access Netflix, and have additional capabilities that ATV will bring.
