New Xbox 360 Slim Compared to Original Model

When Microsoft came on stage at E3 2010 for its Keynote we all wanted to know one thing, will there be a new Xbox 360 Slim? — the answer was yes. Now we have had time to take in the beauty of this latest gaming device, we would like to know how it compares to the original model — you know the one prone to the RROD.

Before we look you might find it interesting to learn if Microsoft has fixed the Red Ring of Death issue, Alan Ng has written a post on this to offer a greater insight. Although we do know that Microsoft has replaced the red LED with a green light.

The console itself is 17 percent smaller than the original model; the new Slim model is much quieter and also runs much cooler thanks to the new 45-nanometer chip. The power button has changed from a mechanical one to a captive touch, and instead of three USB ports there is now five.

The hard drive has also been increased from 120GB to 250GB, but the best feature has to be the built-in Wi-Fi card — this means that you no longer have to purchase a separate piece of hardware to achieve a wireless connection.

Andrew Yoon from Joystiq has provided a comparison chart for you to see all the differences with the two consoles.
