    Just keep it clean and it will last as good as a late Phat model.

    If you mean the RRoD then no, you shouldn't worry about it.

    The Slim prevents overheating by shutting itself off but it does not really prevent cold solder joints etc.

    Just regular cleaning can prolong the lifespan of a 360 by years.

    My harddrive decideded to crap out on me yesterday. E68 error. I think that's the most problems you'll have with it.

    Glad they resolved the rrod, I had over 6(!) broken 360's back in the day. On my current Jtag'ed one, I keep the fans on full power, just to make sure it doesn't overheat.
