    I just recently picked up a Wii, and I can't figure out what kind of chip it has based on it's serial.

    It is a LU 313 series.

    Does anyone know what kind of chip it has and whether or not it has cut legs?

    Ok, I did some research, and it looks like up to LU 314 is alright, but at LU 315 it looks like people are getting cut legs.

    Does anyone know for sure? I don't have a triwing screwdriver, so I can't confirm it yet.

    Cut legs is nasty but not critical, what you want to watch out for it drive chip version: d2c chips appeared a short while ago and as of yet I believe nothing supports it.

    As for serial it is not foolproof (opening a looking is the only way) but here are some threads dotted around this section and the wii devices and utilities forum.

    Yeah my friend bought a wii and it arrive last week, we thought it might have D2C, he bought it from choicsesuk when they had it priced wrong, £150 or so with Resident Evil 4, but they honoured the price, his serial was LEH114... and from the forums i have seen, it was unclear if it had cut legs or D2C, so i said, lets just open it. Turns out was only D2B and not cut legs, so wiikey went in fine and hes very happy! Best deal ever!
