Other than the dimensions and the glossy look, are there any differences in the specifications or do they both use the exact same parts? Which one is still in production and which one is out of production?

There are actually now 3 versions of the PS3. The original, the slim, and the newer slim.

I did some more research online and found out that the Regular and the Slim are out of production. The Super Slim is the current one now. But is the specs still the same?

I believe so, I believe that the parts between the Orginal and Slim were all mostly the same, but that the Super Slim has different parts that have identical specifications (i.e. as technology progresses things get smaller).

Found an article in regards to what you are asking about the PS2 and he PS3 Slim. IT's From CNET Dated back in August 2009. Hope this helps you out. http://news.cnet.com/8301-17938_105-10313110-1.html

yes, they all work the same. The only real difference is how you put in the disks. On the super slim i believe there is just a cover you slide over. The previous ones had slot loading drives. Apart from that its just the fact that its slightly smaller than the other 2 older versions.

Some of the original PS3s had backwards compatibility with PS2 games. But they got rid of that with later versions of the fat PS3 and completely rid of it in the next two versions (slim, slimmer)
