If either of those end up being true , then those that pick up an older unit at the new price would make out better than someone who picks up a slim at that price.
As for me , I really don't care whether it ends up being a slim model or not , $299 is a price I can live with for the PS3 , now I just need to wait for the drop itself (and to finally get around to getting an HDTV to use with it , as well as my 360).
Right now(and apparently until next January)Target has an ACER LCD monitor that will work with the PS3. It has ports for VGA, HDMI and one other input method(which eludes me right now).
It's only $189, which is even cheap enough for me. However, it's only a 21" model, but that's more than enough for me.
