Nintendo Switch Teardown: In Two Places at Once: Page 2 of 2

iFixit's teardown of Nintendo's new Switch console gets into the secret sauce of creating a game console that functions for both portable and home-based gaming.

Overall the teardown reveals the Switch to be a modular, very repairable unit (earning an overall repairability score of 8 out of 10 from iFixit), with the only barriers to self-repair (and possibly some modding and hacking) being some proprietary screws and a difficult-to-replace display and digitizer.
