The Wii itself…

From the pictures that I have seen the Wii is gorgeous…

It’ll look great next to my LCD TV!!!!

The old adage goes that the more modern things get, the smaller they become…

This is true of the Wii, as it is Nintendo’s smallest console yet.  It measures 44 mm wide, 157 mm tall, and 215.4 mm deep (or 8.5 inches long, 6 inches wide and less than 2 inches thick roughly) in the vertical orientation without the included stand.  In real terms, this means that the Wii is approximately the size of 3 DVD cases stacked on top each other.

The front of the console features a slot-loading media drive illuminated by a blue light and accepts both 12cm optical discs for Wii software and 8cm discs from the GameCube.

The Wii console communicates wirelessly with the Internet via IEEE 802.11 or a USB 2.0 LAN adaptor. An additional bonus is that the Wii can also connect wirelessly with Nintendo DS.  The Wii includes four ports for controllers and two slots for memory cards as well.
