Google Nexus 7 Gets Ripped Apart For Your Naked-Gadget-Lusting Pleasure

By Sam Gibbs on at

The teardown masters over at iFixit have just gotten their hands on the Google Nexus 7 and have torn it to shreds as only they know how. Its guts are now on display to the entire world, including some MacBook Pro RAM?

We already know what's humming along inside this thing, and that Asus basically spent more time and effort developing this thing for Google than almost any other product, which is seemingly on show here.

iFixit has labeled the Nexus 7 with a repairability score of 7 out of 10, which is actually pretty good, especially when you think just how cheap this thing really is. It's even got standard Philips screws -- none of those proprietary odd-shaped screws we see on Apple gear and others. Speaking of Apple, you might be surprised to learn that this thing has the same model of DDR3 RAM as Apple's new Retina Display MacBook Pro, and that Asus hasn't skimped out on materials here either, despite its budget nature.

Anyway, I know what you're really here for, so hop on over to iFixit for all the naked gadget porn you can shake a stick at. [iFixit]

Thanks Jeff!
