Valve shows how to take apart the Steam Deck, but it really doesn’t want you to

It’s Christmas for the iFixit community—Valve has finally given us a peek inside the Steam Deck in a new video posted on its YouTube channel. I’m not surprised to see the Steam Deck is packed tight with custom motherboards and the biggest battery it can fit within its chassis, but there’s still a lot of eye candy to take in here.

The purpose of Valve’s video is to walk future Steam Deck owners through the process of replacing the system’s thumbsticks and SSD. Actually, the video is more concerned with convincing you not to take it apart at all. “Even though it’s your PC, and you have every right to open it up and do what you want, we at Valve really  don’t recommend you ever open it up,” the narrator says. Valve has a few reasons for suggesting you not open your Steam Deck, the biggest one being that puncturing the battery could be bad. Like, catch-fire-and-burn-your-house-down bad.
