I still love mine, but this elite model is a crock. We current owners should be able to trade ours in for a substantial discount and pay only 50 to 100 bucks for the elite model.
Uh, no. Maybe you forgot that Microsoft is a corporation, not a charity. No company is going to give anyone that much of a discount to trade in old hardware. The only hardware company I know of that gives a discount for trading in old hardware would be ATI, which only pays $50 for old cards. (When you buy a new one)
