for those too lazy
-15% smaller overall
-integrated 802.11n WiFi and a 250GB HDD
- five USB ports (two on the front, three in the back)
-One of these is a dedicated Kinect port that has more power (???)
- much quieter in operation, 45nm cpu and gpu, one large fan instead of 2 smaller fans


I'm due for a new xbox (brother has claimed the old 20gb one, and I want HDMI output) so I'll be getting one... or getting maybe getting a discounted current model...

oh a new RROD machine :p

personally ii like the styling of it

As for the kinetic (project natal) port with extra power - usb only runs power at 500mah.
they created this port on the new xbox so you dont have to run an external psu for the kinetic device, as you will have to on current xbox 360's

Saw the 2 hour long demo of Kinetic. It isn't bad. But as with all motion controls at the moment, its a bit gimmicky. Still not for the hardcore gamer.

On topic.

The slim looks absolutely beautiful and the inbuilt wireless is top notch. Will wait until my first gen (Seems to be the only one still alive without RROD'ing) dies.

And I would assume the kinetic port is just a powered USB port much like what is on most new laptops.

If these new xbox's die as easily as the first few gens... I'll end up boycotting the 360.
