While some people will absolutely want to buy the Apple TV 4K, others should think about passing on the new model. For now at least.
Apple’s launched a brand new Apple TV alongside its iPhone X, iPhone 8, and Apple Watch 3.
The new Apple TV 4K is loaded with new features, but it’s also a little more expensive than previous models. Many of you are probably fine paying the premium for access to 4K content, but others might be better off with an older model or a device from another company.
We’ve seen a few Apple TV 4K deals emerge ahead of the holidays, but most retailers, including Apple, are still selling it at full price.
There are two versions of the Apple TV 4K. The model with the least amount of storage space, the 32GB variant, costs $179 in the United States. The more expensive model, the 64GB Apple TV 4K, is $200. The company’s 4th generation Apple TV is still on sale and slots in at a $150 price point.
If you’re currently on the fence about buying one for yourself or a loved one, our Apple 4K TV buyers guide will take you through the best reasons to buy the new Apple TV 4K in 2017 and some reasons why you might want to hold out for a few more days, a few more weeks, or in some cases, indefinitely.
