As Microsoft does its about-face on Xbox One (wisely deciding the customer is always right), iFixit has posted its teardown of Xbox 360 E, which iFixit calls a "mid-2013" end-of-360-series game console but being the first console with the XBox One design.
"The brand new(ish) Xbox 360 E is designed to resemble the much-anticipated Xbox One," writes Miroslav Djuric, chief information architect at iFixit, in a press release. "As the Xbox 360 line is nearing its end, we figured that this new release probably wouldn't presage any dramatic hardware transformations. But we were curious if the Xbox's new looks would affect its repairability. So, we handed the device over to our teardown monkeys for disassembly."
Here's an excerpt from those iFixit teardown monkeys of Microsoft's Xbox 360 E, which iFixit calls a "mid 2013 revision to the Xbox 360" game consoles and possible facsimile to "much-anticipated Xbox One."

"Over all, the Xbox 360 E fared very well under our industrious spudgers, earning an 8 out of 10 on our repairability scale," writes Miroslav Djuric.
"Despite a new look, the Xbox 360 E's tech specs are nearly identical to those of the Xbox 360 S:
- 4 or 250 GB Hard Drive
- Internal Wi-Fi capability"
