Get the premium. Thats what i got. Its more economical, and the HDMI cable doesnt make a lot of difference. You can always get one later.

GO elite its a better build. There have been less reports of RED RING of Death.
and its a bigger hard drive

The reason theres been less reports of red ring of death is cause they only just released the elite as that problem was becoming widespread. Thus most of the elites, as well as the hole range of 360s now, have that hardware problem sorted.

At the end of the day, its about what you want to spend. I for one would never use all the extra hard drive space.

I agree go primeum, saves money and i really would like to see a person manage to fill more than 20 Gb, I havent neither have my friends. really its not better it just has a black cover. whoop de do! I bought my xbox 360 a month ago never had a problem. also remember xbox games are build for all specs so that cooler probably will not make a difference. Also if you have a hd tv then buy the cable, they are pretty cheap. and the premium has a hd tv support cable not hdmi.
