So, what do you think?

I think it looks kinda cool, but not sure I would get one.

A 250GB hard drive and wireless N right out of the box.

I guess those are the only noteworthy perks.

Quieter, too. Only one fan (I dunno about you guys, by my xbox always generated a lot of heat. So this one, with the one quieter fan might be prone to overheating,) but several vents all over the thing will probably help circulate air.

Don't like the angled-ness.

It almost looks like an Alienware PC when I first saw it.

Remember there not efficient to. The same technology that makes it smaller makes it generate less heat. So even with the loss of one fan it might be more stable

I like it, and don't own an old Xbox, so this is cool news for me. I'll hopefully get one.
No way dude, you're trolling me.

I'm selling me old 20 GB model for this new sexiness, but they announced a price drop on old 360s, so the trade in value is going to drop. Grrr.

16 gig flash drive is your best bet.

Or, don't trade in the hard drive, and use the Microsoft transfer cable kit ($20) for the new 360.

It looks good, but  I will only get one if my current 360 RROD on me for a third time. I think I'm good for another year or so.
I need a new tag.

Yeah, I suppose.

But I was hoping to trade them all in so I can bag $150 credit. Who knows what it will be worth after the price drop once I'm done transferring it.

But I think I should be realistic and smart. So I'll pass on this.

Realistic? Smart? pfffft, who needs those when it's so shinny! (literally)  ;D

Just pre-ordered mine on the gamestop website since I can't do it in stores yet.
Also, I traded in my old 256mb arcade 360 for $100. I know the guy who works there, and he gave me some sort of promo code, so it was probably less then that

I then used my $121 credit to buy the xbox 360 shinny online.

(I know, I'm crazy)

I'm sorry. But I think I will ignore my compulsive purchasing demons this time around.
