The slight weight reduction from its current 3.2kg to 3.0kg will be indicated by a change in model number from CECH-2000A to the new CECH-2100A.

To quote: "It's presumable that, aside from just the weight, something else has changed inside the system. Sony often makes minor hardware adjustments, changing the model number in the process.

The retailer expects Sony's PS3 shipments to switch to the new version in March."

Two New PS3 Slim Models CECH-2101A and CECH-2101B Hit FCC

235w ago - Last year we first uncovered Sony using the "Sand Dollar Enterprise, Inc" pseudonym to list PS3 Slims with the [Register or Login to view links], and today two new PlayStation 3 Slim models have been uncovered- the CECH-2101A and CECH-2101B.

In this [Register or Login to view links] [PDF] it states the difference between the CECH-2101A and CECH-2102B model is HDD type only.

For those unaware, the "X" in the models CECH-210XA and CECH-210XB represents the region coding, so replacing it with a "0" would signify Japan, a "1" for North America, "2" for Australia / New Zealand, "3" for U.K. / Ireland, "4" for Europe / Middle East / Africa and so on.

To quote: "We're not sure why Sony is passing two new PS3 Slims through the FCC. The wireless specs on the new PS3 Slims include 802.11 b/g and Bluetooth - nothing new there.

Sony Reveals the PS3 Slim System Could Have Been Smaller

245w ago - Sony Computer Entertainment Inc's Masayuki Chatani revealed to [Register or Login to view links] in a recent interview that the PS3 could have been even smaller if they left the power supply on the outside.

However, if they had done this there would have been issues with transport and easy use. The obvious question: Would you prefer the PlayStation 3 Slim to be even smaller with an external PSU, or is it fine with an internal one?

To quote: "It was pretty tough to squeeze a power-hungry piece of equipment like the PS3, drawing up to 250W, into a case this small, complete with power supply.

I think it's a very advanced design, and am really proud of the engineers who achieved it.

True, the case could have been made even smaller if we'd left the power supply on the outside, but that would have imposed restrictions on transport and use, making it harder to use freely."
