bought the new xbox 4gb. so very quiet .. the wifi is nice!
i almost bought a 8gb flash drive to go with it ... glad i did not. i have like 6 usb flash drives at home, and they work.
i would have guessed that microsoft would force you to make due with their overpriced equipment. glad they're not (that) selfish.
same goes with their HDMI cables. i feel really bad for anyone who spends more than 5 dollars on a HDMI cable. I see those 50 dollar ones at the store, and i just shake my head.
