It's an aftermarket one but it's compatible with the Slim model.

Says its for old model, 230w. I thought the 360S was only about 105w?

Also states 'After Market product compatible to Xbox console slim '. Might want to ask him a question and confirm as he has contradictions in the description.

They're reasonably priced on dealextreme, though you'd need a plug converter or your own IEC cable:

How is that ironic? If the power supply died within the year, then go back to the retailer and ask for a replacement.  MS is apparently pretty good about honouring replacements.  And if they try giving you gip (or you're slightly outside the warranty - after all the slim was only released 2-odd years ago), then pull out the CGA argument.  An MS employee is just as entitled to point out that you can get it replaced under warranty and that (shock!  horror!) you have consumer rights as anyone else.

The flatmates PSU died on his 360, he went back to the store and was able to get a replacement without much issue. Not sure if it was under warranty at the time, but they're obligated to supply replacement parts for things they sell "for a reasonable period" I believe, so should still be able to source a replacement although they might be pretty expensive.
