Xbox 360 Elite question

Ok, I have earned just enough money to buy the 360 Elite when it comes out. But when I do, I'll pretty much be broke. So here's my question: should I go ahead and buy the Elite system or wait until the price on the regular 360 drops then buy the new hard drive. Both have their pros and cons, so I thought I'd ask y'all before I did anything.

Buy the elite If you dont have a Hi def TV you probably will one day, so you want to be able to use the HDMI ports. I'm sure you'll able to afford a game sooner or later and may i suggest Gears of war or Guitar Hero 2 if you can find it.
My gamer tag is PHATEGODPRIME Im too lazy to put the little fancy one here.

Thanks for the advice. Now I just have to wait a couple more weeks...

Get the Elite. The extra HDD space, HDMI and black case makes it worth it to me. I'll be picking mine up next month after I pay my car insurance.

Ill be picking up a Elite in a few months when I can. I have had a 360 since the night/morning it came out (midnight at a Gamestop) and have had zero problems with it. The Elite just looks too damn sexay to pass up and I am a die hard 360 fan.

My brother already has a 360 of his own so I will probably end up pawning my 360 off on my Fiance's younger brothers as a X-mas gift. Win win.

If they comes out in Luxembourg I will buy them too, because I like the box they is finally looks like the old Xbox just as I like it. And I heard that the elite one has already an HD-DVD reader inside. So that make it more interesting and also a bigger HDD. So if all this facts re true, it will be my third Xbox 36O :-?

The HD-DVD drive is not included in or with the system. The elite contains a much larger HDD, an HDMI port and everything including the console is jet black like the original system.
