DISASSEMBLED: Apple's iPad Tablet

By - Source: Tom's Hardware US | B 4 comments

Today is iPad day and while many people are at home unwrapping their new toy and revelling in that fresh-out-of-the-box gadget smell, the folks at Rapid Repair are tearing their own iPad limb from limb.

They're still in the middle of the tear-down so while we're waiting to hear the final word on what's inside the tablet that has everybody talking, here's the first set of images from their tear down. We'll add more images once Rapid Repair is done and hopefully we'll catch up with them for a little chat on what they found.

[UPDATE] Added all the extra images we could pull from Rapid Repair. If you want to check out the complete step-by-step disassembly, click here.

    Really, does it need words? The build, like most Apple products, is superlative.

    Really? Any proof of that? These images just show tidiness, and that doesn't mean good build quality.

    Oh, grow up! I said build and I meant build as in construction. I've seen inside enough generic PC's and Mac's to know which has the edge when it comes to production engineering finesse.

    Looks like the battery is user serviceable afterall :)
