Alrite I know many people will tell me to blog this, but we have this family that lives next door, and they are struggling financially, and they have a son he wants a xbox360 but they cant afford it, so this christmas I am getting him one its going to be surprise, I wanna get him a jasper model so I know he will have the least chance of RROD and sending it to MS, is there a way to tell from falcon to jasper??

I don't think so - the falcons and jaspers both have a lower wattage than the others (175, i think).

Btw that's really nice of you man, we need more people in the world like you :)

Dang I wish I had a neighbor like you when I was a kid. If you do that you would definitely be a stand up guy in my books

Well I dont know for some reason giving just feels good especially during christmas, and Arcade is pretty cheap I wanna make someones christmas a really good one. I dont think he will use live or anything so I know he wont need a harddrive it will be primarily for racing and sports games.

i have heard that the jaspers were supposed to be out by late september so my guess is that they wont be on shelves till like late october on november which one do you plan on getting him? cuz i think the jaspers are going to be on the 60GB Pro first i think you can check the power wattage on the power brick if the people at the store are nice enough to let you look inside the box at the store, it is supposed to be around 145w that is really nice of u man :D

hey, check the power consumption to see if its 150 watts instead of 175, also check the Mfr. date (you can get a sales assistant to check this without opening the box by pulling out a cardboard tab by the place where the barcode scan-in is located) if it is anything after October 23, 2008 then it's a jasper, also if you're buying an arcade version it no longer comes with a memory card as jasper comes with increased internal memory (256 instead of 16) this stores the NXE dash. and saves, good luck and good on you for this kind gesture
