    heh,

    you'll find the manufacturing date at the back of the console, in the area
    where the wifi adaptor/video out and power leads connect.

    whether it's a "bad" one or not is irrelevant. if it's gonna go, it's gonna go.
    although hopefully, M$ will have made subtle changes to the hardware to
    minimise the 3RLOD. they have however, now opted to give buyers a 3
    years warranty which should give you peace of mind should it break.

    to help matters, there are things you can do to "prevent" the xbox
    overheating.

    lie it flat in a well ventilated area, i.e. don't cram it into a closed unit
    A/V rack on top of other equipment which give off heat.
    if it's going to be exposed to dust (near a carpet) make sure that you
    check the fans at the back on a regular basis to see whether any crap
    is accumulating...if it is, get one of those "compressed air" cannisters to
    blow the dust/dead skin cells away.
