A 78% increase in fan surface area results in an improved thermal system and an additional 17% thermal capacity. The improved thermal system enables longer, more efficient work sessions while not plugged in. This laptop would go perfectly with the Acer eKinekt BD 3 exercise bike and computer desk hybrid.

We know the new Sony PlayStation 5 slim is smaller than its predecessor, but is that really the case? Dave Lee, better known as Dave2D online, gives us an inside look with his PlayStation 5 slim teardown, which also shows how the detachable Blu-ray disc drive actually works.
After removing the cover, Dave realized that the internal hardware hasn’t changed too much, despite its slimmer appearance and 2.6kg – 3.2kg weight. It’s still powered by the same 6nm semi-custom AMD Oberon Plus system on a chip (SoC) with eight cores running at a variable frequency capped at 3.5 GHz, but has 5 heat pipes and a smaller baseplate compared to the original. To maximize efficiency, Sony engineers also changed the heatsink fan design to have 19 blades instead of the original 23 blades.

Aside from the obvious size difference, the detachable Blu-ray disc drive requires an internet connection for the initial registration process.
Sony claims that the new $499.99 PS5 slim has been reduced in volume by more than 30%, and weight by 18% / 24% compared to the previous models. You can switch between four separate cover panels, with the top portion in a glossy look, while the bottom remains in matte. Anyone who purchases the $449.99 PS5 Digital Edition can add the Ultra HD Blu-ray Disc Drive for PS5 later for 79.99 USD.
A horizontal stand will be included with the new PS5 model. Also a new Vertical Stand compatible with all PS5 models will be sold separately at 29.99 USD,” said Sid Shuman, Senior Director, SIE Content Communications.

We’re not sure where these photographs were taken by Flioryx, although some of the cages and pallets do look similar to something you would find in a Best Buy, Amazon, etc. distribution warehouse.
This new PS5 model is set to hit stores later this month in the U.S. at select local retailers as well as directly from Sony where available. It will continue to roll out globally in the following months. After the current PS5 stock has been depleted, the new model will become the only one available for purchase. As for price, we can safely assume it will be at or around $559.99 USD, which is how much the current Spider-Man 2 bundle costs.
