According to this:
"The key things to look for when buying a new Xbox 360 with the Jasper chipset is a manufacturing date (MFR) as early as 2008-08-06, Lot 8031 and up, and Team CSON."
http://news.cnet.com/8301-13772_3-10054436-52.html

Does anyone know if this is off the box itself? Or is this actually on the console where I wouldn't be able to see it til after purchase? I can't find any info on the web about that, but according to sources these are out now..I'd love to be able to make sure I get one with the new mobo.

TIA guys.

I haven't seen a single confirmed sighting yet so I don't know if that is to be trusted. I don't know if Mfr Date: is written on the boxes but it is on the actual console.

There was just a write up by someone at Anandtech stating what they think might be possible, but they haven't seen one yet either. So I'm guessing if he didn't know, chances are it might still be unknown.

I got a new elite a couple of months back... It's a Falcon. I should have waited a bit more... :(

Thanks, yeah I'm hoping someone can confirm soon. Engadget (http://www.engadget.com/2007/10/11/xbox-360-jasper-shrinks-ati-graphics-to-65-nm/) has this little blurp stating 8/08 also..but again no confirmations.

I'm still considering the Elite for the 2 'games of choice' with it. Lol, I may break down and just get the core as was suggested in another thread and my own hdd...it's getting harder to wait. :p

Identical to the other models in terms of features. It uses less power and it should be more reliable due to reduced heat output from the GPU, which was the main hardware failure factor of previous models...

Answered my own question today, the lot number is clearly marked on the box. That article I posted stated lot 8031 and up - I saw 0830, 8030 and below today. Other numbers could have been code manufacturing dates, not sure. But I do think I'll wait til I see that higher lot number.

Tanks for the replies guys. :)

Oh yeah, those Suicide girls were kinda scary looking. :o

I assume at some point soon SG girls will look young enough to creep me out, but for now they're still hot. I'm still in my 20s, after all. ;)

It's not the age, although they are way, way to young for me, it's their chosen ..theme.
