A teardown of the core components of the recently released Nintendo 3DS has revealed that the raw materials for the console cost $100.71

A preliminary dissection of the product shows that each unit costs $103.25 to build when you throw in $2.54 for manufacturing. 3DS retails for $249.99 in the US. Interestingly, the 3DS raw materials cost is 33 percent higher than the $75.58 required for previous DS models.

The most expensive materials are, obviously, the 3D display and bottom touch screen which total 34% of the material costs.

Intriguing stuff for those who love to crunch the numbers.

Thanks to iSuppli for the info.
