A peek under the hood of a netbook

netbook teardown
One might think that netbooks and similar ultracompact laptops have all manner of specialized, custom made pieces and parts in order to cram all that functionality into such a small frame. One would be wrong: netbooks are chock full of a surprising number of fairly generic components. For a nice visual breakdown of what, exactly, goes into a generic netbook, take a gander at this netbook teardown over at Shanzai.com.

Nothing particularly revelatory, but it’s always fun to look at the innards of something without having to take it apart yourself.
