The Wii U will be available in two different models: a Basic Set and a Deluxe version.
Nintendo announced price, launch and system details concerning its new Wii U console today -- and U.S./Japan residents will soon be able to get their hands on it.
Nintendo fans can expect two different Wii U models: a Deluxe version and a Basic Set version. The Basic Set features 8 GB HDD, a Wii U Pad controller and it in comes in white. The Deluxe model, on the other hand, offers 32 GB HDD, a Wii U Pad controller, power cradles for the Wii U Pad, an HDMI cable and it comes in black.
Some extras that Nintendo fans can look forward to include a separate controller called the Wii U Pro, which resembles an Xbox 360 controller; 25 GB game discs; Wii U's social network Mii Universe, and the system itself is backwards compatible with the original Wii console.
The launch titles for Wii U are "Nintendoland" and the "New Super Mario Bros."
Looking to pick up a Basic Set? It'll cost you $299.99. Or, if you're looking to go all out with the Deluxe model, Nintendo will hit your wallet for $349.99.
Wii U will hit the U.S. on November 18 while those in Japan will have to wait until December 8.

It isn't different RAM pools, it is different local storage sizes for games and media.
RAM on all hardware will be the same, it has to be since there needs to be a uniform baseline spec for developers.

What? The wiiU's specs are 1gb of system RAM and 1gb of ram "for games". It actually is two ram pools.
I'm not referring to the NAND storage.
