Bittersweet 360.

Does the Xbox 360 still red light? After all the amazing things shown at the press conference, it's unfortunate that this remains the ultimate equation in deciding whether to buy [again] the Xbox 360 or not.

Hi, I stumbled upon this blog post and I'd like to add my answer to your question. I bought my 360 around the start of 2008 and have yet to experience any red ring problems, this also suggests that its a newer model.
I however have had a game crash on me but that I believe was related to the game rather than the console, plus that was only a one off. I'd like to add also that my 360 is from the PAL region europe and I keep in a suspended panel with ventilation only at the back and top and none really at the sides or bottom.
I think 360's getting the RROD is very rare now that they have improved the console with the latest hardware renditions.
If you are wanting a 360 and the only thing putting you back is the chance of it crashing I say go for it.

I just had my first red ring a few weeks ago and i bought it in november of '07.  I sent it back just last week(June 1st) and almost as soon as they got i got an email saying they it was fixed and they're shipping it back.  I'm geussing that means it's a new model but i'm looking forward to getting back on thursday.

Like McPaper said, they seem to be getting rarer and rarer so i say go for it dude!
