DSi XL teardown

Our BFFs over at iFixIt went medieval on the just-released Nintendo DSi XL. They sort of looked at it as practice, keeping themselves in shape and head-sharp for this Saturday’s iPad release. You know they’ll be the first in line, screwdrivers and spudgers twitching in their hands. On the DSi XL teardown, Kyle writes:

Nintendo used a shrink ray on the “reverse” setting to develop the XL from a stock DSi. The obvious changes are readily visible on the exterior — larger size, larger screens, even a larger stylus — but we also found several internal updates once we opened our unit.
