In the article it talked about the 40gb and 60gb like the only difference is hd space. As I understand the 40gb doesn't include backwards compatibility or half the other things that the other models can do. And why not swap the internal into an enclosure and put a bigger drive in to replace it, its only a few screws. I was going to replace my laptop hd and put the old one in the PS3 and pretty much double the storage capacity in both of them, plus then I can use linux on it and not worry about space. The PS3 native divix support is terrible.
