This thread is to discuss some basic info and modding for the PS3.

Older gen PS3(non slim) models - You can install the Linux OS on it.
This allows more function of the PS3, better internet functions, streaming, etc.

The new "slim" models you can not add/install Linux - as of right now that I've seen.

All models are user upgradable for HDs and does not void Sony warranty.
HDs are 2.5" in size(laptop HDs) and spins at 5400 stock.

Here's a great link to show how to change out the HD, it's pretty simple, easier than a desktop computer.
You also see that the increase in operating system isn't that much with a decent increase in performance. Also realize that some of this was done over a year ago:
