Kris over at DailyTech sent me a message about their latest news article. They've somehow managed to get their hands on one of the currently limited PS3 consoles in the USA.
Get this, the best thing they could think to do with it was pull it apart and check out all the pretty circuitry - why not play some games or some HD DVD? Oh, I mean... Blu Ray movies. I won't lie; the first thing I would probably do is pull the thing to bits, as well.
Like the Xbox 360, the PlayStation 3 console comes in two flavors identified mainly by the hard drive capacity: the low end model contains a 20GB hard drive and the high end model contains a 60GB hard drive. Additionally, the 60GB version also contains an 802.11b/g adaptor for wireless internet connectivity, a flash memory reader and chrome finishes. Today we will mostly focus on the 60GB version. There are other contractors working on supplying the PlayStation 3 components, but virtually the entire console is assembled by Asustek -- the same guys who make several of the Apple MacBooks.
