Are you the kind of person who delicately dismantles expensive electronics? I know, sorta scary--you don't want to risk not being able to put it back together, and once you crack the case, your warranty's all over. TechRepublic understands. They're impatient hardware types who can't stand not knowing how stuff works. You can check their site for the "Cracking Open" series, where folks go to get their circuitry-related jollies.

Computer guts make for great photography, too. Watch and learn as TechRepublic dives into the innards of the Ion USB vinyl-to-MP3 turntable over on our sister site CNET News.com.
