Curious to find out what’s inside the new Apple TV 2G? The folks over at iFixit performed a teardown recently and found what makes the little set-top box tick. Some highlights:

  • Separate power supply board that can be replaced independently of the logic board.
  • Simple design – there’s 6 pieces!
  • The ease of repairing this device, integrated high-efficiency power supply, low 6-watt power consumption, and efficient stand-by mode lead us to believe this may be the most eco-friendly set-top box of all time!
