    Until today i knew that the elite models didn't come with the jasper mother board.
    Today i saw for the dirst time an elite model with jasper board (after arguing with some people that there is no such thing besides the "resident evil" special edition, the red elite console).
    How long is it on the market?
    Thanks.

    It isn't that there was or is NO SUCH THING as an Elite Jasper dude... Why? Because the elites do not sell as fast as the Premiums and Arcades do, so the Elite stock sits until sold, so the later revisions could be stocked. When the Jasper was introduced, ALL systems made got them, elite, premium, and arcade. The only reason you saw them in Arcade and Premiums first, was they are replenished quicker. The Elite is 100.00 more, and moves slower, so no new ones were put on the shelves till they sold old stock. M$ doesn't take back the OLDER ones to give out new ones... The Premium will also be discontinued, and Elite will take its place at 299.99 - which is NICE, I still have a warrantied premium console through best buy...

    Jasper boards began around July/Aug of 2008, so Elites with those MFR dates and AFTER will have them, but, only places that sell them on a continual bases would see them.

    There are three kinds of Jasper boards too.

    Jasper for the Elite/Premium/ 1st run arcade
    Jasper for Arcade ONLY w/256Mb MC on board
    Jasper for Arcade ONLY w/512Mb MC on board

    Valhalla will be the next 360 run, with SAID to have unified GPU/CPU chip at 45nm each die. Not sure if these will be the Natel revision systems...

    The PS3 slim comes out soon, with all new die process, no details, but it's SMALL, wait till you see it. Why M$ can't get on the ball with technology like this, is just crazy... So many MB revisions with M$, and Sony is getting out their SLIM model already, and it's not been 3-years just yet. M$ is going on 4, same size console, same problems...

    XB1 was never made smaller either, go figure... Well, maybe Zune-X huh? Sony made the PSP, that plays PS1 titles, yet M$ has no portable to take advantage of. Sony may have an unhackable unit, but they know how to design them.
