Must be coming here within the next few weeks, Elites and Arcades are dropping price.

Gotta say, I like the design, but the glossy plastic.  Hmmmm, might have to get myself my second Xbox :)

Also...unlike the old ones, it's Whisper quiet apparently!

So who has the pre-order setup already?

I was holding back to buy the 250GB HDD expansion, but for $500 I might as well buy this new one.

yes, I wrote a guide few months ago. Although no surround sound support in windows media center.

MightyApe has pre-order at $489 (incl courier to your door).

I've had a Resident Evil 5 Limited Edition Red console since they were released, so don't plan upgrading.
It's quiet enough for me when running installed games off HDD / dashboard / watching videos.
