Not possible on a slim. ;)

The slim can still have hardware failures, but they no longer give a RROD, it's a dot now. The failure rate seems to be lower, though time will tell.

No 360 is safe from a Red Ring/Dot, but yeah, slims should have a low failure rate, and also to take care of it properly.

The dot is a different error.
The original error from the original design has been eliminated. The red dot indicates an overheating issue, which was previously 2 lights.

They get a red dot now (red eye of death). I only had mine for less than 2 weeks until I had to send it in for repairs. I think I just got very unlucky though because I believe the failure rate is very low on the slims.
