eBay, via the official Apple Store, is offering the Apple TV 3rd Generation for only $85 with free shipping.  This unit retails for $99 brand new but this deal is for an official Apple refurbished unit.  Apple refurbs are generally regarded as good as new and come with the same 1 year warranty as a brand new retail device.  While the Apple online store has offered this Apple TV for the same price for awhile it rarely comes on their eBay store.  Many buyers prefer eBay for the benefits of Paypal and such.  If you’re in the market for anything else Apple be sure to check their other listing because they have everything from iPads to MacBook Pros.

Apple TV is a tiny entertainment powerhouse that plays content from iTunes, Netflix, Hulu Plus, YouTube, and your favorite sports leagues on your widescreen TV in up to 1080p HD. Just plug it in and discover a whole new world of movies, TV shows, photos, music, and more. You just click and watch. And now with AirPlay, you can wirelessly stream content from your iPhone, iPad, and iPod touch to your widescreen HDTV via Apple TV. So if you want to watch a movie stored on one of your devices, you don’t need to buy or rent it again to watch it on the best screen in the house—yours. And the Apple TV interface makes it easy to find whatever you’re in the mood to watch.
