    The 360S(lim) and 360E are fairly similar, with some slight differences:

    • The S has 5 USB ports, where the E has 4.
    • The S was the last model to feature the “AV Connector”. The E drops this port in favor of a separate HDMI port and composite (ugh) out port. Optical audio appears to be missing.
    • The case design has been updated to match the design of the Xbox One.
    • The hard drive is slightly easier to remove, although it is still only replaceable with official Microsoft replacements.

    Notable elements kept constant:

    • Price & configurations. The E was introduced at the same price as the S.
    • Fans & optical drive design. This means the E likely has the same noise profile as the S.
    • Architecture. It’s the same chips, same amount of flash, RAM, etc. Halo won’t run any faster on it 😉

    Other than the above, the Xbox 360 E is meant to be cooler (temperature) and quieter, though no-one can notice the difference.
