An engineering, aesthetic and technical marvel this little beast is. The Playstation 3 is an immensely capable media-gaming-computing hybrid, statistically it is incredibly impressive so it was no surprise seeing it all delivered in a huge and hefty box like it previously was. This new redesign, three years down the road, is an excellent example of engineers refining and repackaging a very powerful device in to a smaller and critically, considerably, cheaper unit. The PS3 originally sold for $600, this new PS3 Slim, with a 120GB hard drive, will cost you $299. iPod Touch can suck it.
Take a look inside, courtesy of the folks at www.ifixit.com, who carried out a marvelous piece by piece “teardown” of the new Sony Playstation 3 Slim. I am blown away to be honest, they spared no expense with the execution of the design and the quality of the parts…
I highly advise taking a peak through it right here: http://www.ifixit.com/Teardown/PlayStation-3-Slim/1121/1
