    Yes you can install linux (not on the slim version though) on them which is pretty cool + you can plugin mouse and keyboard so it is just like a computer.

    You could if it was one of the regular PS3 but the sli,m does not have linux support so you could not use it as an IM machine.

    I have always been a big supporter of the Xbo360 over the PS3 but I have to say the PS3 is now becoming a decent option. If you are looking for games I would still advise the 360 but if you want a good games system that will play blu-ray films as agood as most stand alone players out there this is a good machine.

    I must say that now the play station ps3 is coming in the range of 250 - 260 $ then it's gonna be more good for the player then can buy a brand new one.. Hey, I have something to ask if the company is declining the repairing fees.
