I know with the original consoles you could not place them vertically because it would scratch the discs and other malfunctions, but wanted to get some opinions about the slim version because it would prevent dust getting through the top vent if it was vertically placed.

Both consoles are the same when it comes to placement, Vertical is better for airflow, Horizontal is better for the disk drive. Choose your poison.

Lol..loved how strongly built the old systems were made my Fallout disc got a ring on the back just 'cause the 360 had a pillow under it.

I'll try and translate that. You are complaining about your 360 scratching your fallout disc when you had it on an uneven surface (pillow)? That is beyond absurd.

Mine was horizontal until my huge rambunctious dog died, now it's vertical.
Everything's better with zombies. Except pie.
