If you're one of the 45,000 people who copped a BlackBerry Playbook this week, this may be of interest to you. The good folks at iFixit did one of their famed gadget teardowns to RIM's new tablet and discovered some pretty interesting things. 

What kind of things? Well, for instance, it's much easier to open the PlayBook than almost any other tablet. And swapping out the battery requires you to unscrew the entire motherboard. They also check out all the cool components of the PlayBook like the 1GHz dual-core processor. 

We shouldn't have to say this, but don't do what they do unless you don't care about your warranty.
