iFixit Tore Apart a Nintendo DSi XL and Found… No Surprises

The Nintendo DSi XL (extra large) game console was, in my opinion, not met with the same excitement the DS and DS Lite met during their release periods. The DSi didn’t seem to generate much interest even when it introduced dual cameras and a couple of other enhancements. The DSi XL’s apparent lack of consumer buzz didn’t deter iFixit from taking it apart for your entertainment and education, however.

Nintendo DSi XL Teardown

As you might expect, iFixit found things are bigger in the DSi XL (compared to the DSi): Larger battery, larger stylus, larger screens but with the same 256×192 pixel resolution. iFixit didn’t report any surprises hidden inside of the DSi XL.
