"Elite system that should've been avialable @ launch"4.0 starson by Jotas
Pros: HDMI, bigger HD, a new color
Cons: No modular HD DVD drive, no WiFi.
Summary: I agree with many stating that they feel bamboozled by Micro$oft (including myself) because most would've spent the $500 to purchase the best system Micro$oft had to offer at the time. Now the Premium users are left out in a way. Sure small things like a new color, bigger hard drive and finally HDMI support are there but this should've been offered at launch time and NOT a year and a half later.
That said, there's only a few things as previously mentioned that are worth the added price. Luckily we can at least upgrade the hard drive and can still see HD games/movies. However, to infuriate more users, Micro$oft should've included a modular drive so that Elite owners could upgrade to a nice internal HD DVD drive down the road. You figured they would think of going all out if they were going to p1ss a lot of people off. Oh well my two cents.
