    There are few things that Ben Heck loves more than to teardown the newest gaming console release, watch how he unboxes the XBox One S and takes apart each component as he goes, including the controller. We learn how cost savings have been made with design alterations to the chassis and the printed circuit boards. Ben also compares the XBox One S side by side with the original XBox One and discovers that a connector is missing, which one could it be? The power supply is one major change with the new XBox console, compared to the early days where it was practically a huge brick! Ben also highlights the changes in the CPU/GPU heatsink and the limitations of hacking the HDMI ports on the board while considering if it can be turned into a laptop. Do you think there's something else we can do with it? Let us know on the element14 Community, where you can learn about upcoming episodes and join The Ben Heck Show team.
