That router you "dissected" looks quite awesome. Had I known that Belkin Vision can show me the status of my network, I would had bought it, because it's cool. I got addicted to cute complex Internet gadgets after I realized I had a Trojan and after I got a Cloud Computing Security scan, I started being more careful with everything WWW involves.

Almost everything inside a computer is cased and you can't really see what's inside. They do that for protection from particles and dust or electrostatic charges. But knowing what's inside the cases is not too important because if something breaks, it's not the kind of technology you could ever fix by yourself. The best you can do is to install an antivirus plus software that keep your computer clean of any malware.

 Except for one or two of the dvices that I do not own, I have seen the insides of most of this stuff.  And some of it actually went back together and worked!

12mm fan for a PC case?  That's kinda small isn't it?

I'm pretty sure it said 12 CM... and unless I really suck at math that is 120mm. And 120MM is a standard sized case fan.

80mm is the standard case fan size. 120mm is found on a few custom systems but it is far from being the standard.

120mms are now fairly standard in consumer cases they may start to be phased out by even larger fans.  its hard to find a 80mm on a modern consumer case

80mm are still the standard for 4u server cases

Since when did we consider GPS devices, mp3 players, mobile phones and ebook readers as PC parts?

I get his point though.  They could have said "Electronic Devices" instead of "PC Parts."  This is Maximum PC, so we can assume that it's going to be PC-related.

Not only that, but I also expected pc parts because the title said "PC Parts". :P

You can't really take most PC components apart, e.g. ram, processors, etc, so they use things they can take apart.

since finding actual PC parts to support a monthly autopsy column became really difficult.

Think about how many PC components you can take apart and look inside. There aren't many and most of us have probably already broken in to those.

"OCZ Core 64BG SSD"

A BG?  LOL!  i started laughing when i saw that.  Thats happened to me on many occassions.  just wanted to point that out.  Great article though.  always interesting to see whats under the hood of different devices.

Is it just me, or are all of the items in this artice past autopsies (from the magazine of course)

 I remeber seeing a lot of these.

Seems like it, yes. Maybe it's a slow news day?

Great review. It's actually good for ones that are curious what's under the hood. Remember don't fix it if it aint broken.
