    6 ideas to make the 360 better and reliability wasn't even mentioned. that is like going to a cockroach infested Burger King and telling the manager they are outta napkins at your table.

    Apparently HIS 360 has been reliable so he didn't feel the need to mention it. I agree with his points, and I'm curious about that new chip.

    To be fair, the first point he makes is about a better cooling system to help eliminate the RRoD and states that over heating has been a serious 'thorn in the 360's side.'

    From everything that I have gathered, isn't that the primary issue of reliability with the 360, overheating leading to RRoD? Mine has done it once after a power failure / surge but recovered immediately afterward so I can't say for sure.

    Yep. Fixing the RRoD was the first thing on his list. He just listed it under "better cooling system" rather than something obvious like "reliability" or "fix the damn RRoD".

    I agree with all the points he made. I love my Xbox, despite getting the RROD on mine once and having to get it repaired. I don't know about the slimmer design as a real necessity, but the everything else would be awesome.
