One thing to consider is to get a great deal on an Xbox arcade like this one:

http://deals.woot.com/deals/details/128a2937-c53d-44ca-af20-b56cd2ccaa66/xbox-360-arcade-console-50-dell-promo-giftcard#0

And then buy a hard drive separately. You don't have to open up anything or void any warranties to plug in the hard drives - they're made to slide into a slot at the end of the console so they can be swapped out by any user.

This is just a sample of a deal you might find on a hard drive (I don't have time to really go looking right now, but start with google)

If you wait to get the $50 Dell Gift Card from the offer above, you could get this Xbox 360 60 GB Live Starter Pack*, which goes for $99 at Dell, for only $50 after you use your card.

That would be $230 for a 60GB 360.

*Includes 60 GB Hard Drive, 3 month subscription to Xbox LIVE, Ethernet Cable, and Wired Headset (like what comes with the Elite)

@donfmorrison: great find.

Like I said, @rjsets, if you shop around you can get a cheap Arcade and build your own "Elite" for less money than Microsoft charges for an Elite.

It's not exactly on sale but heres one at walmart thats $299.99 with a 50$ giftcard and I feel that a walmart giftcard is more valuable? Not the right word but I can't think of it right now.. than a dell one. Eh basicly you can use it on more crap like food stuffs or what not.

Or heres an arcade for 199.99 with a 25$ card

http://www.walmart.com/ip/Xbox-360-Arcade-Console-w-Bonus-100-eGift-Card/13044371 Subtotal: 175$

The arcade might not be a great deal but the elite based on the price that was posted earlier for building a 60 gig its a good deal for only 20$

@dravack: Does "versatile" work for what you were trying to say? I'd buy that.
