I think the idea behind going to a slim form factor is that with a new form factor, smaller die size processor/GPU and re-engineering to accommodate a smaller case, heat will be much better dissipated from the console, helping to stop the RROD. It's what Sony did with the PlayStation 3 Slim, I mean in the Slim's case they didn't need venting all around the case and some big fans on the back unlike the original models to keep the system cool, same idea applies here. Plus as many have speculated, the re-engineering also presents them the opportunity to integrate Natal right into the console (hey, it's Microsoft, they did it with HDMI and they will do it again to get you to buy a new console).
