PS3 Slim deconstructed, innards explored

Here’s how slow of a news day this is: I got up at 6:30 a.m., finished some work from last night, and then started playing Tiger Woods PGA Tour 10 for the Wii. There’s nothing going on! In the office, we’re not talking about videogames. Instead, we’ve been chatting about how Firefox has gone downhill, and how cute wild felines are. That’s not to say that I wouldn’t have ran this blurb on a deconstructed PS3 Slim anyway, but I just want to let you know where we’re coming from today.

Website ifixit has done an extensive teardown and display of all of the PS3 Slim’s innards. Four full pages of high-quality images give you full instructions on how to take one apart, as well as show you all of the interesting bits inside.

Things of note (may only appeal to tech geek types):

  • massive internal fan
  • very small power supply
  • New Cell processor and RSX chip
  • overall elegant internal design

If you don’t like flipping through webpages, you’ll find a video that ifixit put together after the jump. It doesn’t look like $300 worth of parts when taken apart, does it?
