revueteardown

Despite what you may think there are no mystical fairies, imps, trolls, or leprechauns living within the Google TV-powered Logitech Revue. Sadly for the Insane Clown Posse there is no magic either. Nope, just the standard printed circuit board and tightly soldered components. The pièce de résistance? A 1.2GHz Intel Atom processor calling the shots. iFixit, purveyor of the teardown as an art form, is quick to point out that Apple TV’s A4 chip is capped at 1GHz.

The actual teardown seems quite simple, with only a few screws and plastic clips standing between you and your Revue’s guts. They give it a high repairability rating, but point out that if you need to replace any component on the main board you will need to replace the entire board. See more pics and details at the source link below.
