    I swear a while ago naughty dog said sony freed up some extra memory with one of their firmwares. Maybe this is what they were talking about? It would explain the faster loading...

    Well the older models did have otherOS, some had Backwards capability, shinier, but had a pretty high price tag.

    Now the slim has everything the Regular one has Except OtherOS, and costs 299...

    the regular has its advantages but the slim is also cool. so they are both good

    Either one is great IMO.

    The reduced power consumption figures is enough to justify the lack of an "OtherOS" function. Although, I don't really understand why they had to take that out. Obviously for cost-cutting but I don't see the PS3 requiring additional hardware for the "OtherOS" option unless it was a license issue, which I'd be suspicious of since Linux is free, isn't it?

    oh really? where at?

    But why spend the 99€ if you already have one that works perfectly? just cause its slim?

    For those who dont have a ps3, go buy the slim we always love more good respectable people on the PSN.

    and for those who have the regular PS3, then good, your not missing out on anything on the slim, just power consumption, its slim, and slightly faster loading times, but i dont mind waiting. we do live in a world where we must wait (even if you are rich).

    Well, supposing that someone were to leave their PS3 on constantly -- folding@home or something -- the power savings could probably make up that price difference fairly quickly.

    I remember reading an article on Wired that said a ps3 left just on idle (no games, anything) would cost over $200 a year to run. So if the slim really does use half the electricity or whatever, it might be a decent savings in a year or two if you leave your system on non-stop.
