iFixit’s Steam Deck component selection includes whole motherboards

Spotted by IGN and GamingOnLinux, DIY repair company iFixit accidentally revealed its catalogue of Steam Deck components early, providing an interesting look at the console’s repair options. The full list is as follows:

  • Fan: $24.99/£19.99
  • Anti-glare screen: $94.99/£89.99
  • Normal Screen: $64.99/£59.99
  • L/R Thumbstick: $19.99/NA
  • Action button, D-Pad, or Steam button membrane: $4.99/£4.99
  • Speakers: $24.99/£24.99
  • L/R Trigger Assembly: $7.99/NA
  • L/R Bumper Assembly: $6.99/£6.99
  • Back Plate: $24.99/£24.99
  • Front Plate: $24.99/£24.99
  • Motherboard(no SSD): $349.99/£289.99
  • L/R Daughter Board: $29.99/NA
  • Battery or Screen Adhesive: $4.99/£4.96
  • AC Adapter (US/EU/UK): $24.99/£24.99

Many of the components also come with an optional $5 “Fix Kit” from iFixit to aid in installation. The most surprising inclusion, to my eye, is the Steam Deck’s full motherboard sans SSD. Between this list of components and Valve’s release of the CAD files for the Steam Deck shell, you’re most of the way to being able to build one of these yourself. It wouldn’t be cost-effective by any means, what with the motherboard alone costing as much as a retail Deck, but it’s surprising to see this many official options in the typically proprietary, anti-DIY world of mobile computing.
