Amazon has the latest box, It's rumored to have HBO GO in the future. It's fast and has a bluetooth remote control. It also has a game controller for $40. I like that it has the watch ESPN app built in. But for my purposes, I have a ps3 that does netflix, Amazon videos, and hbo go. I can use chromecast to mirror my computer monitor for $30 and use it to watch ESPN and other streaming videos to my tv. I don't see anything special about the Amazon box except for the fact it's fast and has bluetooth remote. I heard plex works great on on the Amazon box, but I never played with it.
As far as the apple tv, the new one should be out in a couple of months. I'm curious to see what it's going to offer, so I wouldn't even consider getting this version of apple tv. Nothing special about apple tv other than the fact that it mirrors your iphone or mac computer to the tv. It also has hbo go and netflix which my ps3 has.
The cheaper alternative is chromecast, which you can find on sale here and there for $28. It mirrors your chrome browser so you can stream watch ESPN or similar streaming programs. It also has HBO GO and netflix. It would be nice to have slingbox support.
