360 Elite officially announced

Not a huge surprise, but MS unveiled the new 360 Elite yesterday. For $479, you basically get HDMI and a 120GB hard drive (and it's now black). I'll probably drop the cash on the new hard drive, but doubt I'll get the whole new console. It's nice that it comes with a transfer cable to migrate your old data. We'll see......

I love things in Black, but it's just not enough to get me to bite.

If they reduced the drive noise and built the wifi in, then it might be a bit more appealing.

My current HD-DVD drive is getting ok to less than ok use, but I have started to use it to watch regular DVD's as well (ie use that as my primary dvd player, and also to not wear out the internal Xbox drive).

The biggest complaint I have about the 360 is just how noisy it is. I think component cables look fine on my 1080i tv, so HDMI doesn't do much for me either.

I've got a healthy investment in the 360 already, so I can't justify an upgrade.
