New MacBook Air gets a teardown

Posted in MacBook by Conner Flynn on October 22nd, 2010

The folks over at iFixit have torn apart the new 11.6-inch MacBook Air. It’s just what they do. If you are squeamish about your tech being taken apart, then don’t look at the pics. Still, it’s good that they do this, so that you and I don’t have to.

If you don’t have experienced hands, don’t try it. You will void your warranty if you decide to strip down your new MacBook Air. Anyway, if you are itching to discover what they found, just have a click on the link below.

Nokia N8 gets torn apart

Posted in Nokia by Conner Flynn on October 8th, 2010

The Nokia N8 is shipping to Nokia fans right now and the folks over at iFixit were happy to get their hands on one too. As usual, they decided to take it apart. Some good news is that the BL-4D battery is only two screws away from being user-replaceable.

There are also the massive Xenon flash and camera modules, which are not removable from the main board. Remember these folks are professionals. Do not disassemble your N8 unless you know what you’re doing. You may not be able to put it all back together.

New Apple TV gets torn apart

Posted in Apple TV by Conner Flynn on September 29th, 2010

The newly shipping Apple TV has just undergone it’s first autopsy from iFixit, revealing the device’s hidden specs and innards. It looks like the inside of Apple TV has a lot in common with other iOS devices, including the iPhone and iPad.

There’s 8 GB of NAND flash memory on board, 256 MB of RAM (the same as iPad), the same Apple A4 processor as the iPad and iPhone, and the same Broadcom chip for Bluetooth, FM, and WiFi b/g/n capabilities. And some solder pads near the side of the logic board look like a perfect fit for an Apple dock connector.

Playstation Move gets iFixit teardown

Posted in PS3 by Conner Flynn on September 20th, 2010

As usual, the folks over at iFixit have wasted no time doing their latest autopsy, this time on the Playstation Move. The teardown yielded two surprises. The motion controller is very easy to dismantled compared with most devices.

They also discovered that the Move includes many components that are typically included in smartphones. It has an accelerometer and a gyroscope, but also a full processor, a vibrating motor, Bluetooth and a compass.

Latest iPod nano gets dissected

Posted in iPod Nano by Conner Flynn on September 9th, 2010

The folks over at iFixit were not going to stop at just disassembling the new iPod touch. Now it is the nano’s turn. The 6th-gen device weighs 67 percent of the volume of its predecessor, with a thicker body and an integrated clip on back.

The teardown found that the 2010 nano has its front glass, LCD and touchscreen assembly all fused together. The battery size is 105mAh, which doubles the 2010 shuffle’s 51mAh.

4th-gen iPod touch teardown reveals stealth antenna

Posted in iPod Touch by Conner Flynn on September 8th, 2010

The folks at iFixit continued their investigation of the latest round of iPods with a teardown of the fourth-generation iPod touch. They went deeper than the FCC teardown, and confirmed that the Wi-Fi antenna has been moved to the front, eliminating the need for the black plastic window on that earlier models had. It also shows that Apple is using Toshiba flash memory for the main storage on the iPod; other Apple devices usually use Samsung.

The A4 processor model number is the same one as in the iPad and confirms that it’s using 256MB of RAM. The iPhone 4 has a different label to indicate that it has 512MB. The headphone jack is removable for the first time, and there’s a gap around the battery that simplifies removal.

Dell Streak gets torn down

And now because you love to look inside of your favorite gadgets, but don’t want to sacrifice your own, we have some Dell Streak teardown pics. As usual, the folks over at iFixIt did the autopsy for you.

There’s really nothing unusual here, but as always it is fun. One interesting thing is that the Streak’s Gorilla Glass front panel is bonded to the LCD, so you’ll have to replace both if it breaks. Other than that we can just enjoy it’s innards and poke around visually.

If you love your Blackberry, then it must really hurt to see teardown photos. Sometimes it takes a strong stomach. Let’s hope they were gentle. Even though BlackBerry’s Torch 9800 was just announced a little while ago, we already have the teardown.

Some folks just like to dissect gadgets and some folks like to watch. Nothing wrong with that. We don’t judge. The video below details the slider mechanism in action, which is rated for over 150,000 cycles.

Posted in Motorola by Conner Flynn on June 25th, 2010

Motorola’s latest Android smartphone, the Droid X was just announced a few days ago and we already have a teardown. This one comes from the guys over at DroidX.net and they even have a video tutorial if you want to take yours apart.

The Motorola Droid X comes with Google Android 2.1, with a 4.3 inch capacitive touchscreen display with a resolution of 854 x 480 pixels, a 1GHz processor and an 8 megapixel camera that can record HD video in 720p.

Fusion Garage’s JooJoo gets torn apart

Posted in Tablet PC by Conner Flynn on April 4th, 2010

People have now started to receive their JooJoo tablets, so this day had to come eventually, where someone tears it apart to expose it’s secrets. It’s a dirty job, but somebody had to do it. So, what did they find during the surgery?

Well Engadget says that the JooJoo is easy to open up, only requiring you to remove 10 screws. Under the hood there are slots for RAM, 3G radio, SSD, and even an extra PCIe slot. Performance-wise, they ran into some problems using Hotmail, and Netflix didn’t work at all on the thing. Maybe that will be cured soon.

The big feature is that huge 27-inch LCD with 2560 x 1440 resolution. IFixit reports that the screen is made for Apple by LG. The iMac has an input that will allow you to play your Blu-ray through the iMac, but the machine does not ship with the adapter needed for connection.

Taking apart the Dell Adamo

Posted in Dell by Conner Flynn on April 12th, 2009

Taking apart the Dell AdamoiFixit and TechRepublic have teamed up to give us a peek at the innards of Dell’s new thin and light ultraportable Adamo. They wanted to see how it stacked up against Apple’s MacBook Air, so they compared build quality and specifics.

What did they find? Well, the Adamo features a 11.1 volt 40 Watt hour battery, compared to the Air’s 7.2 volt 37 Watt hour battery, and accounts for a greater percentage of the weight of the computer than the Air. The Adamo looks like it features a lot more technology in an only slightly heavier package.
