any real differences with the elite? all I know of is the bigger HDD and the HDMI support (which the premium comes with as well)

It has another heatsink on the system that cools the graphics better. Takes less power.

I got the red ring about a year ago. I opened it up and even took off the sticker thing. When I sent it in, I put a hand-written letter in the shipping box, saying I had a younger relative who liked the sticker because it was shiny and took it off. About 2 months later, I got a brand new console in the mail.

As the HDMI thing goes, when you use 1080p, it looks distorted because it isn't native 1080p. I just use it in the 1080i setup wit monster cable.

EDIT: Nevermind about the native HDMI thing. You can download an update on the Xbox LIVE marketplace so it still looks on par with a PS3 at its best.
