The Xbox 360 has gone through quite a few hardware transitions in its lifetime, but the 2013 model still intrigues us -- it's potentially the last, most advanced iteration that we'll see. iFixit must be equally curious, as it's tearing down the console just days after its launch. The shock of this latest system may rest in what hasn'tchanged: despite being smaller and (reportedly) quieter, the updated 360 is still using the cooling, processing power and storage of its 2010 predecessor. Most of the differences exist in the enclosure and some minor component tweaks, like the new RF module. This model isn't a revolution, then, but iFixit appreciates its more repairable design. Gamers wanting to explore this tiniest of Xbox 360s can check out the full teardown at the source link.

It could be even smaller if they went with a slim line ROM drive but it's probably cheaper just to stick with the existing parts.
If one of my 360s died, I'd probably get one

Yeah, I actually quite like the design. I have been seeing a few cheap bundle deals here in Aus for the 360 and if these new consoles come out and offer a cheap bundle I might think about getting a second one for my lounge room (my current Xbox is in my bedroom).
