I think it's almost time to replace my Apple TV–it's great for streaming audio, and Boxee is a nice touch, but it just doesn't have the horsepower for things like streaming live baseball or Netflix.

I'm also not ruling out a Boxee/Ubuntu combo, as I figure I could get some refurbished hardware to support that setup for not a whole lot of money.

If anyone happens to read this and has any insights, I'd love to hear them.
