Gift Tip 91: Sony PS3 Slim
 
Buy Sony PS3 Slim from Amazon Cyber Monday and Black Friday Now
 

The Sony PS3 Slim from Sony is an improved version of the earlier Sony PS3 model. Sony pulled up the curtains on this PlayStation 3 Slim gaming console at the GamesCom 2009 Expo. The Sony PlayStation 3 Slim CECH-2000A adds 40GB to the hard drive storage capacity over the old PS3 model whose capacity was 80GB. The new PS3 is 33 percent smaller and 36 percent lighter than the earlier Sony PS3 models. Its internal design architecture also got a makeover from the previous models.

The Sony PS3 Slim uses the new 45nm version of the Cell processor which uses less power and reduces fan noise. The new processor achieves all these things working at the same clock speed as its forerunner. In contrast to the PS3 models that came before the PS3 Slim, this model is meant to be used horizontally. If you want to hold it vertically, you can use the stand (sold separately) supplied by Sony.

The hard drive has been mounted at the front to render it more accessible for replacement. Sony has gotten rid of the "Install other OS" feature in the PS3 Slim. By taking away the "Install other OS" feature, Sony has deprived gaming enthusiasts an opportunity to run other operating systems on the PS3 Slim.

The biggest advantage of the new Sony PS3 Slim is its price. Sony reduced the console pricing to $299.99. This price cut has reenergized PS3 console sales this fall. Besides the 120GB Sony PS3 Slim you can also get the 250GB Sony PS3 Slim selling for $349.99.


Great Gift For
For anyone who wants a high-end gaming console. How to decide between Xbox 360 and Sony PS3 depends on the games you want to play and if a Blu-ray drive (PS3) is beneficial. Also if you want to play online, Sony's Playstation network is still free. The Xbox Live network has an subscription fee. Both consoles can now stream Netflix.

Price and Where to Buy
The 120GB Sony PS3 Slim is selling for $299.99 on Amazon.com.
The 250GB Sony PS3 Slim is selling for $349.99 on Amazon.com.

About the Geek Mind

The “geek mind” is concerned with more than just the latest iPhone rumors, or which company will win the gaming console wars. I4U is concerned with more than just the latest photo shoot or other celebrity gossip.

The “geek mind” is concerned with life, in all its different forms and facets. The geek mind wants to know about societal and financial issues, both abroad and at home. If a Fortune 500 decides to raise their minimum wage, or any high priority news, the geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants to know the top teams in the National Football League, or who’s likely to win the NBA Finals this coming year. The geek mind wants to know who the hottest new models are, or whether the newest blockbuster movie is worth seeing. The geek mind wants to know. The geek mind wants—needs—knowledge.
