FYI, Amazon started selling the 2101A model on March 1st. I had over $180 in credit at a retailer so I went that route and didn't get a 2101A.

Model number mentioned on the bottom of the Box.

Amazon Customer discussions show that not everyone got the CECH 2101A.

The model number is on the box in two or three different spots.

I wonder when those people ordered their PS3's. What I do know is that on March 1st, the 120GB PS3 listing had "newest version" labeled next to the price and when I sent an inquiry to CS, they assured me that if I were to order from them, the model was confirmed as CECH-2101A.

ohh maybe they bought it on amazon at the time when Amazon Ps3's were out of stock and the other sellers were selling PS3's for $350 or so on amazon.

3 years later and mine still works flawlessly (modded to 320gb with a 7200rpm drive). The new ones are getting YLoDs and disc drive failures. ROFL MODE ACTIVATED! Are you following me throughout SD? My first stalker, how sweet!

Except launch PS3s are most likely to have blu-ray drive problems and the 7200 rpm HD does nothing but make your PS3 get hotter? You win the prize!
