Thoughts on the design of the Xbox One S console

Andrew Kim, via Paul Thurrott:

“We also wanted to simplify the hardware to align with the new Windows 10 design language that was being developed in unison,” he continues. “This simplification started with implementing a unibody construction that reduces the external shell count to just three parts. We also dramatically reduced the size of the device and removed the bulky external power supply. The final design is architectural, logical and easily accessible thanks to its surprisingly low price point.”

I’ve never been a fan of the Xbox but this thing is gorgeous. To be honest, I actually really liked the design of the original One as well, sort of reminded me of an old VCR, but this takes it to a whole other level.
