    Actually, you just want to make sure the wii is still under warranty. If tht is the case, you are fine anyway because if theres something wrong you can send it in.

    There have been subtle manufacturing differences but nothing that should matter to the average consumer.

    That said, there is some question as to whether there's slightly-newer hardware in some Wii models that make older ones have difficulty reading the SSBB discs. Nothing confirmed though.

    If you are planning on chipping your Wii, you have far more options using an older model.

    The later ones use the D2C chipset on the DVD drives which limits the type of modchips you can install.
