Well, if it's the CECHE01 backward compatible, I would say no because if they can't fix it you won't get the same one back. Otherwise, get the 250.

I recommend buying the Super Slim 250GB PS3. It's definitely worth buying since it has a lot of memory.

80gb refers to hard drive space not RAM. Every ps3 model (old and new) has the same amount of ram
