iFixit Tears Down the Kindle Fire

The torxheads at iFixit have pried apart the Kindle Fire, revealing expectedly modest internals jam packed into the 7″ device. As demonstrated by the iPad, hardware specs don’t matter nearly as much as the overall user experience software-side—especially when processing is offloaded to a powerful remote supercomputer. Nevertheless, the tablet features a 1GHz dual-core processor, 512MB of RAM, and 8GB of internal storage. The Fire earned a repairability score of 8/10, and while it’s not recommended that you crack open the device unless you really need to, replacing a broken screen is definitely do-able from home.
