Here's the sleek hottie herself. This is actually the bottom of the machine, but the top looks identical. That's important, actually, because this is the first Xbox 360 without an easily removable hard drive.
Here's a side view of the machine. Notice the venting on the side. This has some interesting implications. First, of course, this means you can't stack anything on top of this Xbox.Second, maybe with better and more centralized venting, this new Xbox form factor will cool better and we won't see so many Red Rings of Death.
The front of the new Xbox 360, upside down (hey, your gallery photographer hadn't had coffee in hours!).In any case, it's important to note that this Xbox doesn't have physical buttons.These buttons are touch sensitive and, boy-oh-boy, sensitive is the operative word. You can just brush by the Xbox and the disk tray will shoot out.It's actually a very annoying design element and, because it suddenly starts the machine, may cause its own brand of failure. Joy.
