I owned the ps3 slim for years prior to getting the 790.
Both have their merits.
The PS3 slim is still an excellent player and a no brainier if you want a decent BD player, a fair DVD player and some streaming. What it does support for streaming is good however it does have a few quirks. It can't pass bitstream audio out for vudu and amazon DD+ and DD respectively. Both the amazon and Hulu + apps though are significantly better UIs. Also the pS3 offers the major sports streaming services too.
The ps3 consumes a fair bit of power, is slower to load disks than the 790 and the Bluetooth remote is a bit of a pain if you need to integrate it into other remote systems.
The s790 offers all the Bravia Internet video services so good if you want to use pandora and crackle. The s790 also offers more video settings choices and has SBM if these things are important to you.
Probably other things but that's a start. Personally I prefer the 790 as I'm not a gamer and don't care about the sports streaming.
