S model didn't burn itself down.
You are wrong.
It didn't burn itself down in the first 2-3 years of it's life.
However if you go now and look at reddit, ebay, youtube, and many more places there are many more units of S consoles with Red dot of death, than FAT consoles (jasper motherboards) with RROD. In fact there is pretty much no jasper consoles overheated, but there is many S consoles died already.
If you compare it to the earlier FAT consoles, then yes, I agree, they are much better than 2005-2007 units. Maybe as good as 2008 units. However 2009 and 2010 units of the FAT consoles - Jaspers, are the best and the most reliable ones. They live for 10 even 15 years, but there are many S consoles which are dying after 5-6-7-8 years of use with Red dot of death.
But still .. this was not the point. We were talking purely about the design itself. Many people like the FAT one the most. So for some the S is the prettier for other the FAT one is the prettier.
