New iPad gets torn apart, confirms what the world already knew
This one is not for the fainthearted. There is nothing a Apple nerd lusts more after the announcement of a new iDevice than the queues that form on the launch day outside Apple Stores and the inevitable iFixit teardown of the said iDevice. It is a tradition and the new iPad launch is no different with the guys flying down to Australia to get their hands on one before anyone else. The teardown confirms whatever Apple had announced, including the A5X processor, and some stuff they did not announce, like doubling the RAM to 1GB from 512MB in the iPad 2 and that the Retina Display is indeed from Samsung.
The shocking part, however, is the repairability score of just two out of ten. While we sincerely hope Apple makes it easier to repair its iDevices but for the moment all we can suggest is to protect your new iPad with your life. Anyway, hit the source link to see the internals of the new iPad.
