Default PS3 hardware chip versus software emulation (for PS2 games)

Hi everyone, apologies if this is an exisitng thread already?

the 60GB PS3 was praised for it's hardware chip to play PS2 games while most of the newer PS3's use software emulation.

reviews state that the hardware emulation plays "most" PS2 games and the software emulation plays "many" PS3 games.

is one really better than the other? it seems we have no choice but to go software emulation on the newer 80GB PS3 and no option to play PS2 games on the 40GB version.

any reason to find a 60GB PS3 on ebay? (I doubt this option makes any real sense, just curious what some of the techies in the forum might think?) Thanks!
