    I'd say the Slim.
    Slim E requires extra hardware.
    Phatties... well, unless you want a more noisy box then go for that one.

    Slim is the best option.

    I was leaning towards the slim but out of curiosity how much extra hardware would an E model need and does it difer between 4 gigs and hdd versions?

    4 GB versions need a different dumper (more soldering)
    Post fix adapters (extra 10 quid) and some extra soldering as well.

    Yea for the 500gb you would need the cr4, a way to dump the nand (jrp or similar) and solder etc and postfix adapter

    TX is releasing a new Post-fix adapter for the 500 GB models.
    RGH isn't running on it yet and it might also need another XeLL build.
    But yes, a CR4, Post-fix for Slim E, and JR programmer is required to hack it.

    No.
    If I was you, I'd get a 500 GB 2.5inch HDD and switch it everytime you switch NANDs.
    Hacked Xbox emu does not work from USB and will never work from USB as well as the old Xbox games need the HDD present.
