The new Apple TV is a lot smaller than the first generation, and obviously costs Apple quite a bit less to produce, which is why the can sell it for a much lower price of $99.
The first generation Apple TV cost about $237 in parts, whilst it seems that the new Apple TV costs about $64 in parts, according to the guys over at iSuppli.
The Apple TV could end up being another profitable product for Apple, as people are much more likely to purchase one with the $99 price point.
