Posted in MacBook by Conner Flynn on July 21st, 2011

iFixit has a new MacBook Air. You know what that means.Tearing it open and checking it out. So what did they find. There’s the new Thunderbolt port of course and the fancy new keyboard backlighting. But inside is where all the good stuff is.

There’s an Intel Core i5 processor of course and a Bluetooth 4.0 chip and we also learned that the MacBook Air scores a four out of ten for ease of repair, so it might be best to leave this job to the experts. After all this toy is expensive.

Do you know what’s in your PlayBook? Well, we already knew most of the specs, but some things we were unsure of. Like whether the 7-inch tablet had a gyroscope. Now we know that it does, thanks to the guys over at iFixit who have done their usual great job of prying a gadget open and digging inside. What would we do without them?

They gave it a repairability score of 7 out of 10, which is pretty good. Replacing the front glass is a bit hard, but that is true of most devices. Hit the link below for the full details and lots of awesome pics. And don’t try it at home unless you are very confident in your skills.

So what exactly is inside of a Samsung Focus? If you’ve been dying to know, but have been understandably unwilling to take yours apart, don’t worry. Someone has done it for you, dissecting the whole thing, and showing you the various chips that are on board from Qualcomm, Micron and others.

One thing they noticed is the use of SanDisk 8GB NAND flash RAM, instead of Samsung’s own memory solutions. The 1GHz Qualcomm Snapdragon processor is also in there. No need to take apart your own to satisfy your curiosity.

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.
