I have had the xbox 4gb slim model for about a month now, I love this thing, it has spectacular graphics(the best in my opinion) has overall good build quality and a nicely strong built wireless controller. I like the fact that the new 360 slim has the new redesign cooling system. I have noticed that the xbox 360 does get really hot at times(on top of the fan) but after some research come to find out that's actually a good thing. that means the fan is doing it's job and blowing all the hot air out of the console and in return your 360 will last for years to come without over heating,besides even if it does get to hot the new xbox will shut its self down and you can turn it back on after it cools, to prevent it from a complete melt down. just make sure that you keep it in a well ventilated area,maybe on top of a desk or something. never put it in an enclosed area. I have played mine for over 15 hours straight! Halo 3 and the Assasin's creed trilogy with no problems. and about 8-11 hours on a daily basis, again with no problems, the xbox game selection is great. I would suggest you lay the xbox on its side, not standing up, laying on its side lets it breath better and wont scratch your disks,besides a disk drive operates better laying flat, thats why they dont put them vertically in computers. hope this long comment helps.By the way xbox 360 slim eats playstation and craps Nintendo. xbox is the best gaming console i think. i would know cause i owned all three platforms.
