They introduced a new chipset in which the CPU and the GPU are all in one. That means a single heatsink instead of two, with much less chance of failure. Also, the thing has one giant fan instead of two, so it's much quieter. I guess it's still pretty noisy when a disk is in the drive, but it's got 250 GB of space on the HDD, so you can install much of your library to the HDD to keep the noise level down.
Engadget reports that games loaded much quicker when playing them on the 360 Slim.
Also, the RROD is far and gone. Kinda. Now it's the RDOD, or the "Red Dot of Death"... Except a far better acronym would be RDOP, for "Red Dot of Protection". See why here.
Oh, and Wi-Fi built-in.
