    The Wii U is still mostly uncharted waters.

    Portables and the future of the Wii U
    Current documentation on the Wii U shows is unlikely that the Wii U will be suitable for portables. However, this could change as more is uncovered about it. Nobody believed the Wii would be a suitable portable, but look where we are today.

    Current obstacles for Wii U portables
    Little to no documentation
    Circuit board is larger than Wii's
    Primary components on board are spread out
    3 wireless cards, rather than 2 with wii
    Consumes more power than Wii, even in wii mode
    Number of layers is unknown
    Software is not as hacked and modable
    Currently expensive.


    Revision codes
    I have begun checking the revision codes of Wii U's at pawn shops. Although only the 01 board has been dismanteled photographed, I have encountered 2 codes.

    01
    30

    Motherboard Pictures
    Here is a album of Wii U motherboard pictures I took a while back.
