New 160GB Apple TV a prelude to HD?

Ben Drawbaugh

Apple recently started selling an Apple TV with a 160gb hard drive, which makes us say; about time! But at the same time this got us thinking, why would you possibly need this much space in an Apple TV for, other than HD video? Sure DVDs can be as much as 9GB, but not when compressed with H.264 (especially with Dolby PLII audio). Maybe it is just wishful thinking, but it seems that everyone is pretty disappointed with the quality of the movies from iTunes. We know the Apple TV is capable of good quality -- not great -- HD video, but when will Apple bring us more HD is the question.
