many users complained about lack of hdmi
many users complained about lack of a larger hard drive.
these concerns were all answered, be it in a single bundle, but they were still answered, i dont see what your point is?
i dont care for the black, i dont NEED hdmi (VGA thank you) and i dont need a bigger drive, but i'm not complaining by ANY means. MS is listening to the fans, and i dont think they are ripping off anyone at that price point. a hard drive alone at the 179 mark is high, but it's not like you HAVE to own or buy one, i'd say the market for the larger drive is fairly small.

and while i agree that the problems should be addressed and the elite should include the 65nm processor, i will also say that I BELIEVE that NO more consoles should be put out with these problems or the 90nm chip, but that surely isnt going to happen.
almost any problem you can pick out about the elite you can also pick about the core/premium, so MS definitely has some issues to work out, but please, put the elite complaints to rest already.
