Anyway, if you want to guarantee you've got the new revision 360, look on the box, on the barcode sticker, and you'll want to find the power supply rating. 230W is the old system, avoid at all cost. 175W is the new system, you're golden if you find one.
203W may be a new one, may be an old one. The only way to tell for sure is to actually open the box, and look through the vents and see if there's a heat pipe on the cpu cooler. If there is, it's an old system. If not, it's new. Only settle for the 203W box, if there are no 175W boxes to be had (assuming you are impatient and can't just wait it out until more 175W's hit the market.)
I picked a 175W one up yesterday at Best Buy in Frisco. They're sold out all over Plano, and McKinney. Frisco had 14 as of noon yesterday. I got there around 2:10 and there were only 4 left.
