The PlayStation console is first and foremost a gaming system, but it can also be used to watch multimedia. The Sony PlayStation 3 Slim was engineered to be portable. It measures 13.4 inches wide, 6.3 inches deep, and 13.4 inches high, and it weighs approximately 7 pounds. Its attractive black matte finish blends with any décor if you’d prefer to keep your PlayStation 3 Slim permanently in your home. The PlayStation 3 Slim uses a 45nm processor that’s just as fast as the 60nm processor in older PS3 models but far more energy-efficient. The device comes with a 320GB hard drive, so you’ll have plenty of room to store photos, music, movies, and other multimedia. If that’s not enough storage space, it’s easy to swap out your 320GB drive for something larger. The drive is on the front of the console, and you can remove it simply by unscrewing two screws. Touch-sensitive pushbuttons have replaced the unit's master power switch and eject button. The system only takes 20 seconds to boot up completely. The Sony PlayStation’s power supply and cooling mechanism have been incorporated within the console itself, so the fan makes a lot less noise. An Ethernet jack and outlets for HDMI, optical digital audio output, and proprietary PlayStation AV output are on the back of the console. The Sony PlayStation 3 Slim has the same first-rate gaming capabilities that made you fall in love with PlayStations in the first place. Use your PlayStation 3 with a Bluetooth DualShock 3 for single player or multiplayer games. This PS3 is Internet-enabled, so you can even go online to play with gamers from around the globe. You can also surf the Internet with the unit's built-in web browser. Supporting Dolby Digital 5.1, the PlayStation 3 Slim is also a great machine for playing DVDs or streaming your favorite titles from Netflix. The unit supports disc-based media as well as MPEG-1, MPEG-2, and MPEG-4/h.264 video files through the USB port. You can play Blu-ray titles too by using an HMDI cable.
