From the list of changes, I'd say cost reduction is sufficient motivation.

Maybe, Microsoft has learned from the automobile industry. They refresh a little bit the design of the old model and increase the prices before they come with a new model.

Nice work... I would have loved to see also the gaming controller tear down. It would be interesting to see what accels/gyros were used. MP Divakar

First to market has always been a huge concern among console vendors ... it could very well be a stop gap measure

Easy assemble and disassemble is always better. To maximize profit, management counts every screw. The fewer; the better. I wonder what's the motivation to launch XBox 360 E in this late time since the launch of XBox One is right around the corner. Would keeping Ouya to gain momentum be one of the reasons?

Nice quick overview of the Xbox 360E! I was wondering how this compares to the previous offerings and why we would want to upgrade?
