Apple TV storage upgrades
iResQ today announced it has begun offering Apple TV storage upgrades, offering several different levels of hard drive upgrades for customers wanting more storage space for their data. iResQ, which has been performing next-day Mac-related upgrades and repairs since 1994, said that Apple TV upgrades will be performed within 24 hours of receipt at the iResQ repair facility in Kansas City (Missouri). The service will provide each customer with the appropriate shipping materials and pre-paid labels to safely transport the units to and from the shipping facility. Pricing is $210 (80GB/5400 rpm), $260 (120GB/5400 rpm), and $300 (160GB/5,400 rpm)--all of which include overnight pick-up/delivery.
"Upon Apple’s delivery of Apple TV’s last week, we immediately received requests for hard drive upgrades," said Ryan Arter, President of iResQ. "After consideration and testing we can confidently perform these hard drive upgrades with ease. All units that arrive will receive our first-class attention, a brand-new hard drive installed by an Apple Certified Technician, and we’ll return it to our customers within 1 business day after we receive it. If you’ve got an 80GB iPod, you’re going to want to sync to an 80GB Apple TV. 120GB and 160GB upgrades are available as well."
