I've been meaning to get a US black Wii with Gamecube controller ports for a while now to replace my US white Wii basically for collector reasons, but am unknowledgeable about the drive and board differences between the two, in relation to soft-modding and running homebrew. IIRC, the drive on original white Wiis that were out for the first lot (I got one after 6 months from release) are considered better or something? Can someone elaborate on this, as I'm completely clueless? Bearing in mind that the model I get will be an older black one as opposed to the newer, non-GC compatible ones. Thanks to the more knowledgeable of you out there.
