I don't like the new ps3 slims at all. The only thing that appeals to me is the larger hard drive but even that I don't really need. My old school 80gig does everything I could want. YDL is taking up 30gig, I have 4 downloaded games, almost 20 disc based, most of which with installed data, countless VMC's and nearly my entire 114 cd collection ripped perfect quality to the HDD and still I have about 18gigs free. All that money for just more memory, albeit a lot more memory just doesn't seem like a good idea. Well, for me anyway.
