Thanks. I guess I'll go and dig through the ones they have.
Look at them carefully before you buy one. My friend bought a used one for 150$ at the local ebgames, and it was a launch date xbox with the x clamp fix applied to it.... and for 200$ he couldve had a brand new xbox 360 jasper.
Mine has one and I have the 20gig pro model. I do have the Falcon mobo, and I have NEVER had any problems nor have I had RRoD. I did have real choppy menu shifting when the huge update for XBL came and they introduced the new dashboard.
If you want to use the HDMI, you do need the HDMI kit which basically if you look, the A/V cables when connected cover the HDMI output on the xbox, so the kit basically gives you an adapter that doesn't cover it. (this is only if you want HDMI + A/V or Component. There is another way which I wish I knew earlier to save $80, where you crack off the plastic from the A/V input. search up some videos on youtube which do show you how to do it, all you really need is a knife and maybe a screwdriver. it's really super easy, my 8 year old brother could do it
I would try to convince you of avoiding refurbished models, there are way too many horror stories out there and once failed xboxes that have had a fix applied to them will not last longer than an additional 6 months and that's on the high end.
I would take what money you have now, and keep saving until you can afford a retail xbox or a used one manufactured later than 2007 that has naver failed.
PS: i bought a RROD xbox that i thought could be fixed, and my fix worked for about 4 months, but now i leave it running caseless to save time because it re-RROD's once a month and i need to re-apply the fix, saving myself the hastle.
Once this one kicks the bucket finally i will buy an arcade model.
