    Its the type of flash chip in your ps3 that holds all or part of your firmware. Older fat models have nand and hold all the firmware.

    While the newer slims have nor, half firmware on flash and the rest on the harddrive. No idea why sony changed, guess nor is cheaper ?

    Well technically It Means:

    NAND = NOT Gate + AND Gate.
    NOR = NOT Gate + OR Gate.

    These NAND or NOR hold PS3s FW.
