1. Is there any chance a newer Slim coming out this year like September or August? Possibly. If it does, it will most likely be a bundle PS3, one that comes with a game. 2. Are PS3 Slim hard-drives upgradeable? If so, what type of hard-drive does it use? All PS3 HDDs are upgradeable. Any 2.5" Sata 5400 RPM HDD will work. Here is a 500GB HDD for $55: http://www.amazon.com/Seagate-Momentus-5... I prefer WD ($60): http://www.amazon.com/Western-Digital-Sc... 3. The reliability is a lot better in Slim than Fat right? The fat PS3s are known for the Thermal Paste breaking down, which leads to the YLOD (Yellow Light of Death). I have both a PS3 fat and a PS3 slim, and I have had no problems with my slim (my fat is glitching and needs to be sent in). The Slim is more reliable than the fat, at this point in time (there don't seem to be any major problems with the slim). **EDIT** P.S. On the upgrading the hdd. Can it use 7400 rpm without overheating or anything else? It is not recommended using a 7200 (that's what you meant) RPM HDD, as it can cause overheating. The speed gain of a 7200 RPM HDD is about 1 or 2 seconds, not hardly fast enough to risk destroying your PS3.

Hi, I've tried all different diets, and the weight loss is only temporary. I finally tried diet pills on the market are made from Hoodia. I saw this stuff on ABC News. It's all natural and safe, and it works! My wife took it for a month and dropped 20 pounds. I took it for a month and lost about 13 (but I didn't exercise). I bought the natural hoodia from this website: http://www.alllsite.info/free-diet-pills.php . I checked the web site address so I can post it here and I saw they're running a promotion now to get a free 2 week sample for only $4.97! I'm going to order this supply for my wife and give it to her for Christmas =)

1. Sony is rumored to be announcing a new price for the slim at $199.99+tax, but as for a new model probably not any time soon. 2. Yes, you need a 2.5" SATA with 5400rpm, I wouldn't put one with any higher rpm just in case of the overheating issue. 3. Its really hard to say, but I have had both my original was bought at launch in 2006 and I stopped using it once it began making noises that were not right and then bought a slim 2 years ago an it still works great.

The slim PS3 hard drives are upgradeable, it take a 2.5" Serial Internal Hardrive and as far as reliability i own both and never had any problems with either one.

1: haven't heard anything about a new slim. there could possibly be uncharted bundles, maybe even resistance, bundles(but resistance is coming with sony's 499.99 3dtv bundle, so maybe not resistance). but there are no plans or rumors that i haveheard. 2: yes. the PS3 uses a 2.5 serial ata, 5400rpm, up to 1 terabyte. 3: reliability betwen the newer and older models is equal. the newer systems have a more eficient chip which means they dont get as hot, so there is no need for a huge shell to promote breathing. hence the slimmer design.
