Apple just announced its revamped Apple TV.Available on March 16 for $99, the device features a redesigned user interface and support for crystal clear 1080p video.

The Apple TV has yet to enter the mainstream in the way that other Apple products have. Will this update be the thing to push it over the edge?

In its most basic form, Apple TV is a way to bring Internet content to your television. The newly-revised model features a snappy interface redesign and support for 1080p HD video.

Apple teamed up with a number of partners to help make sure there's interesting content for you to watch -- sporting events, Netflix, and YouTube are at your fingertips.

Any music or movies in your home iTunes library can be enjoyed over a WiFi network, and you can even buy more movies and TV shows directly from iTunes.

You can keep all your video content on iCloud if you like -- let Apple worry about hard drive space instead of you.

Apple TV supports iTunes Match as well -- subscribers can put their entire music library in the cloud without having to upload it themselves.

We love our iPhones and iPads, but sometimes we want some more screen real estate. That's where AirPlay comes in handy -- whatever you're doing on your iDevice can be mirrored to your television.

It's hard to argue with the $99 price tag and it's easy to love how small the Apple TV is.

Now for the real star of the show...
