    Almost none.

    Only that black wii's ALWAYS have these cons:
    - Completely no disc-backup loading possible. Which eliminates GC backups for now. (You could replace you drive lens etc. but I'm talking about software. [​IMG])
    - No chance of a vulnerable boot2. (But, loads of white wii's have this too).

    now i could be wrong but

    Completely no disc-backup loading possible. Which eliminates GC backups for now.

    should also affect some off the newer normal white wii's, specially the ones produced at the same time as the black wii's

    I also confirm darkmystery's notes.

    Basically, a black wii isn't different from a recent white wii.



    Oh, it probably also comes with 4.2...just like the recent white wii's (no, that doesn't make it harder to hack or anything like that).


    EDIT: and yes at D3MON23: there are indeed also white wii's with that newer drive that prevents backup discs to load.

    Well, there were a few gems for the GC, such as Zelda. There are also people with dead DVD drives who want to play those games from USB, and that's where the problem begins.
