They don't make a 'core' anymore, its been replaced with the 'arcade', which has the new cooling technology to cure the overheating problem, and also has an HDMI port, which I beleive the 'core' didn't have?

No new 360 for me frown.gif but very pleased with the repair time 169144-ok.gif

New motherboard and DVD drive, working at the moment but the test will be at the weekend when i let my son loose on it smirk.gif he's got a couple of weeks gaming to catch up on tongue.gif

I did have a laugh when I got in, I shouted "where's the love of my life" my wife replied "I'm in the kitchen" and she got the response for me "Not you, the xbox" jump.gif

Then i played 'dodge the saucepan' for the next few minutes tongue.gif
