Is there any way prior to buying a 360 to tell if it's got the quieter falcon chip? If I can identify a way to know before taking the system home from the store, that would be great.

Chances are if you buy it these days, you will have the quieter one.

Also, on the box on the new 360's, it'll say "Go Pro!" or something to that extent. It's different for each sku, but you get the point. :P

Hmm, thats strange. Because my older system was quieter than my newer one. Even though they were both made after the end of 2006.

Mine's got the BenQ Drive, which is quieter but mine is the Arcade Version which IMO is the worst one. I've had 4 break in 5 months.

OK so I guess I just pick up a box with the Go Pro quote and then from there I have to take it home and home for the best eh? Thanks for the tips.
