    Valve video shows the Steam Deck portable PC's internals

    Video showcases the internals and discusses upgrades. Disassembly is not recommended.

    I'm glad it looks like the parts subject to wear and tear can be replaced. This was my main concern with the design.

    I love how informative they are about the dangers and the warranty doesn't cover damages you cause.
    I also like how easy it is to disassemble.
    Most competitors are like:
    "Little sticky screw cover looks damaged -> warranty void"
    and
    "If you touch the insides you will die immediately and your house will explode"
    and
    "You will have to drill out the bolts to replace the keyboard"

    Aren't warranties being voided by that method now illegal?

    I thought that was just in the US.

    From the LTT video I watched, it seemed like Steam phrased it quite carefully, and in a way designed to skirt that.

    You have the right to open it up and monkey with it but won't be covered for any damage you do in the process. I took that to mean you can peel back stickers, or whatever, but if you cause damage doing it, on your head be it.

    And I don't fault them on that, either.

    The grey area, of course, could be in whether what you did is or isn't responsible for whatever is broken/damaged/faulty.

    "Valve is going to have SSD upgrades available in its eShop"

    So... the store had better feature HUGE warnings.
