This machine is absolutely gorgeous inside. There's clear symmetry that is there for aesthetics alone.
The rear case is CNC machined from a solid block of aluminum, using the same process as the MacBook Pro.
Apple has used more epoxy to secure chips to the board than we've seen before. This indicates that it is designed to be even more rugged than their laptops.
The battery isn't soldiered onto the motherboard. That means replacing the battery *is* feasible for users who do not want to give up their precious for a week. (And then get back someone else's iPad!)
This unit is different from the FCC photos. Toshiba DOES NOT have the flash memory in the production units! Instead, Samsung has secured a major win.
The battery integrates two separate 3.75V lithium polymer cells wired in parallel for such ample battery life.
