    All X Box's now have a 3 yr warranty from Microsoft regarding the "3 red rings of death".
    The Elite has the hard drive, wireless controller, headset, the ability to go online with an adapter and, if you get one of the newer ones, a different processor and quieter hard drive. Graphic handling capabilities are 100% better as well.

    Ive had two premium consoles suffer from the 3 red rings before, Both times ive gone out and bought a core 360 for £199 because i have been told it might take a few weeks to be repaired only to have them back to me within a week.. each time i put the core systems on flebay and got my money back.. they generalize it as a hardware failure but its more than likely the dvd drive as it was with mine.. Hopefully you'll be back playing soon..

    I have just bought an elite and its a vast improvement to my previous premium 360's.. Its a lot quieter and runs a bit faster.. defo an improvement..

    the way the screen was freezing and beeping, seems to be a video interface unit fault. once repaired i think my nephews are gonna have a pretty sweet xmas present from their uncle russ!

    Im doing the same with my PS3 around xmas time.. its going to my nephew on "loan" he can use it until Sony decide they want to give 100% support to one of their products and release some Good or least half decent games for it.. GT seems to be the only good game the PS3 has in the pipeline and thats been put back until march.. 1 year after they launch it theres a good game being released..!!

    Are you getting an Elite??
