"patented technology with overmoulded stainless steel structure"
to me it looks like it is nothing more than the SS back plate fused to the back plastic cover .......am I missing something here?

There is a reason the Archos are thinner, lighter and cheaper than everyone else. I don't know exactly how to describe what they do, but I think it's some kind of clever mix between how plastics and stainless steal make up the case of the device and the way they make those snap into each other.

They're surprisingly sturdy for how thin they are, though. It's weird... they can be thin yet sturdy. Kinda like what i feel is the exact opposite of the Macbook Air lid.

Now all we need to see is a teardown of the A70 250GB so we can see what drive was used and if there's any remote possibility of either putting in a higher storage capacity drive or a higher capacity SSD.

Archos usually has some clever encryption stuff going on with their hard drives, so those cannot be changed by the user. Though I also remember some hackers find ways to possibly hack that.

Looks like the seagate momentus thin was used, this sata drive is only 7mm thin.

Which is why they can't yet make 500GB or larger capacity tablets without making the whole device thicker.

I believe there is supposed to be metal inside the plastic, like a skeleton.
