Internally, it's a regular 2.5" HDD, like those in notebooks. I've seen up to 320gb drives, but I think there might be 500gb by now. Here's a guide to replace it. (basically, open it up, copy old drive's contents to new drive, and replace old drive with new).

But even handier, here is a guide to a hack that allows you to use the USB port on the appletv to connect an external hard drive. This is way cheaper for large size capacities :)
