You may have seen us mention some of iFixit’s teardowns at some point in the past, they generally take apart the insides of smartphones and tablets, providing us with a look inside the device without voiding any warranties (well, at least our own).
With the recent launch of Microsoft’s new Xbox One S games console, iFixit have taken the opportunity to provide us with a quick look inside of the new console.
As it is 40 percent smaller than the original, this is quite an interesting tear-down, and even a tiny Master Chief.
iFixit gave the new Xbox One S a repairability Score of 8 out of 10, where 10 is easiest to repair, mentioning the following:
– Only a few tools are required to take the whole console apart.
– Once inside, a clean, no-nonsense modular design allows the drives, fan, heat sink, PSU, wireless board, and front daughterboard to be easily replaced.
– Fewer interlocking body panels and a simpler clip arrangement make opening this generation of Xbox easier than its senior.
– Replacing the hard drive will require both voiding your warranty and some difficult hackery to make it serviceable.
