I suggest you ...

Show closeups of the components like optical drive brand when tearing apart a notebook.

The whole reason for seeing the guts of a teardown is for the details, but the teardown always skims over the component information like optical drive manufacturer, etc.

        Given the high volume of failed DVD drives, I suggest a school on drive mechanisms. Which are the best designs? What are the interchangeabilities? What makes the Hitachi S10A such a POS? When does a drive really need to be trashed?
