Update: Now shipped. Original: It seems, that according to our order status on the Apple Ireland store, that Apple TV is ready for shipping. We won’t get netflix in Ireland, and new version has no internal hard disk, but draws content from the net with the ability to stream from your iOS devices (that’s your iPods/iPhones and iPads) and your PC to your TV using Apple Airplay, for around 120 euro is a little too tempting to resist? Click through to vote in our poll.

In addition reports today are saying that Apple TV is running some version of iOS, and as Apple have a policy of deploy the hardware before possibly offering additional apps to it’s devices,  we may well see some interesting Apple TV apps down the line.

Have you placed your order? Excited, or even bothered about Apple TV, let us know in the below poll.
