ASUS Eee Pad Transformer Prime gets torn down, stands naked in front of the camera

ASUS Transformer Prime gets teardown treatment

AnandTech have a great article in which they've stripped apart ASUS' latest tablet, the Eee Pad Transformer Prime. They were researching the GPS issue, and got to the point where they'd rather tear it apart to take a look instead.

In order to tear it apart, you hold it in landscape position with the camera at the top, and notice the Prime is held together by a bunch of plastic snaps across the top/sides and adhesive along the bottom. AnandTech reckon the best way to get it open is to separate the display from the aluminum chassis using a plastic opening tool along the top and sides. Tools required would be a heat gun to warn up the glue to get the bottom to pry apart. Of course, there's always a risk with doing something like this, so use caution.

 

AnandTech didn't find any surprises in the Prime, noting that there's a 32GB Hynix e-NAND (eMMS controller + MLC NAND in a single package) device on-board as well as a single 1GB Elpida LPDDR2 DRAM. To check out AnandTech's teardown, clicky your mouse over here.
