Same... 
 
Edit: Okay that's interesting. Doesn't look like much of a redesign besides adding ugly ass vents.

@SPACETURTLE: Strange, that's what I keep seeing each time I click on it.  You must have adblock or something.

Ah, yeah, you might be right, I didn't think about that. 
 
Anywho, that's exciting. I haven't payed too much attention to Microsoft's E3 stuff this year, but most likely we'll be hearing something about this, if this actually turns out to be a "360 slim".

Looks like they made it so more air can flow through it, possible RROD killer?

If they're bothering with a revision, they've definitely take all precautions to eliminate the RRoD problem.  Increased ventilation is probably one of those precautions.

This actually looks legit. Even when you click it, you get redirected to the xbox Italian site.

It really does not look " slim" The dimensions look bout the same.

We have absolutely nothing to compare it to.  We'll need to see it in person (or see a side-by-side comparison with the original) to really be sure.

I do not think it will be slimmed down that much. But I admit it looks very cool.

It's not a whole lot thicker than the disc drive. I'm fairly certain those have standard sizes.

This might be true. There's a couple of Microsoft ads I have for my site which I can't use until a certain date/time. That date/time is after Microsoft's presentation.

Ah, right.  Well, my guess is that it's a (stupid) codename.

If the disc drive plate is the same size as the regular 360's then it does indeed look smaller. The regular 360 is 4 to 5 drive plates thick (at the thinnest part in the middle). That one looks 3 to 4.

Ah crap... not if it's any thinner. Perhaps new smaller drives would be backward compatible, but I couldn't imagine older drives larger than the slim xbox being compatible.
