The reason for the slim is it will be close to impossible to flash the drive to allow backups :P

So does that mean it's harder to load pirated games on it?

Right, actually till now, the slim hasn't hacked yet. and this problem last and is stable before hacking.

The drive has a strange connection, that the latest "kit" for flashing the drives does not support. The Mobo ROM also flashes the drive quickly on startup by checking via a checksum of the Drives' Rom chip, any changes flashed back again.

Nothing is impossible, everything is hackable.

Doesn't really matter if shia knows how to hack it, he's not a hacker.

But as with everything made by a human, it's only as good as the person who made it. There's always a smarter or more resourceful person out there, someone will hack it eventually.

Not that I really care, I've never hacked a console. I'm to afraid to ruin a $500 console for a few free games.

I don't think it's worth the money.. Smaller size? I don't care. 250 GB Hard drive? That'd be cool but you'd have to download freakin everything to use it all. Quieter? I can't ever hear mine as it is. There you go, I just made the slim obsolete. :P

Ahhh you French >.<

It wont happen, considering you wont be able to flash the motherboard manually. It will be impossible.

That is if indeed the motherboard ROM will infact flash the drive on bootup if its not matching a signature.
