I have a few questions on my mind about the super-slim before i purchase it, so i thought i'd come here as this seems the best place to get the right answers.
1# Does it take a Sata "2.5 hdd? if i was to upgrade the hard drive, i'm sure it is as i've seen a tut but would like someone to confirm it.
''Users can also expand the storage capacity of the new PS3 with 12GB flash memory by connecting a dedicated HDD (250GB) to be released concurrently with the new PS3 *1'.
'When using dedicated HDD, flash memory cannot be used as inner storage'
i'm assuming this means you can only use a external hard drive and not use the inner 12gb when the external is in use?
2# what firmware will it come with out the box (if you know) and can you mod/flash it?
if so please state which model numbers are moddable and which ain't so i can pick the right one and if it will come with the right firmware to modify it.
3# has anyone flashed it yet? if so, please state what you used or link me to a working thread as it would save alot of time me looking for one/thinking if its going to work or not and ruining the system.
4# does it play .avi extention?.. back in 2010 my fat one did but i heard due to a firmware update they stopped it.
I'm sure this thread will help quiet a few other people too that might be interested in purchasing it.
