So I received an Xbox 360 Pro for Christmas this week, which is exactly what I wanted. I knew that Microsoft has recently switched to a 65nm chip to improve efficiency & reduce heat, so naturally I want one of these new machines under the tree.

So my quest begins to find one of these rare birds to begin my adventures in Tamriel. A knowledgeable clerk at another store understood my plight, but only had falcon Elite systems available, so I need to decide if I desire this elusive beast enough to upgrade…
