What Is The Difference Between PS3 Models?

HubPages: One of the most complex tasks facing anyone looking to buy a PlayStation 3, whether it is new or used, is what model of the system they are purchasing. Even moreso than the Xbox 360, the model of your PS3 can change your entire gaming experience.

They all perform alike, but have lost features with newer revisions.

would have a PC, obviously you do, so the few 100 people that used the feature now can't, sure that sucks, but it was done to stop hackers from ruining the network, much like all PC games are full of hacks and pirating. PS3 has no pirated games and no online hackers. And if they need to get rid of a feature to keep it safe, be my guest.

Rock Band 5 Bundle? Surely that must be a mistake in the article.. Or this whole article is a big mistake. :\

Sadly the article doesn't give the difference between the 3 PS3 Slim models:

CECH-2000A (65nm, about 110watt usage)
CECH-2100A (40/45nm, about 80watt average power usage)
CECH-2500A (40/45nm, but a few watts less power usage from optimizing)

See the picture added for this info in a schedule.

In all honesty, PS3 owners really don't have give a shit about nm size of chips, motherboards, etc like Xbox owners had to, to determine which system was going to work. The power savings and chip sizes are great, but I won't be looking at model numbers when purchasing my next PS3 like I had to for my 360.
