A1 = teh SuX, if you think otherwise then you just allowed yourself to settle for lameness. If the later models have improved then great for them. It still does not take away from the A1 sucking. Does the 360 do everything? hell no. There is definately a trade off. For me the convenience outweighs cons. Once the format war is settled maybe I will pop for a dedicated unit. Until then the consoles will suffice.
Load times aside, why is 1080p important? You have the same TV as evilchris and he's stated on numerous occasions the TV has a built-in scalar or whatever you want to call it that takes 1080i60 feeds and deinterlaces them to 1080p30
