Samsung Chromebook taken apart to pieces

iFixit recently took the Samsung Chromebook apart piece-by-piece to reveal its inner-most parts.

Samsung Series 5 3G Chromebook Teardown - iFixit




The iFixit teardown shows how to remove the wireless cards, solid state disk, motherboard, and other components. Along the way we learn that the Series 5 has a 16GB SanDisk SDSA4DH-016G SSD, which is the same SSD used in the Google Chrome Cr-48 laptop. The notebook also has a Qualcomm Gobi mobile broadband chip and an Atheros AR9382 802.11n WiFi chip.

The teardown also confirms that the Chromebook has a 1.66 GHz Intel Atom N570 dual core processor and 2GB of DDR3 memory. You can find more details and photos at iFixit.

LOL, I remember when I was young and I was too curious what makes toys move this way and that. So I'd break them apart and not able to put them together again.
Anyway, I was hoping to see a cloud inside.

Hahahaha, that is hilarious..lol. Well, taking apart the pieces is such a good idea and I am sure the curiosity in the minds of many people like me is now cleared.

Humor aside, great tear down, nice to see that some of the tech from the CR-48 made it.

I am guessing it makes is easier for drivers and keeps the bloat down in ChromeOS. Seems like less hardware you have to support in the Official channels the better.

I can't wait to see how the dual core works vs. single core esp on Hulu.com...
