Attention US Black EEE PC Users: Does yours have a Mini-PCIe slot?
Posted 15 November 2007 - 10:26 PM
Please post here if you have looked under your new EEE. Let us know if you have or don't have a Mini PCIe slot in there.
(For the un-initiated, its under a small plastic cover under your EEE where you can upgrade your RAM. If there is a warranty sticker and you peel it off, it will void your warranty!)
Mine comes in tomorrow and I will provide my own input and pictures. Lets get some feedback rolling!

Those with and without the mini-PCIe slots.. Can you do me a big favour?
Can you post out the first 5 digits of your S/N found on the barcode label under the EEE PC and also the tiny number under "MB Rev"?
Asus seems to have stripped out the mini-pcie connector on all new batches, i am trying to verify the batches that are affected! :)

At least if you send it in without the sticker you can claim it wasn't there...

As far as sharing your serial number...I wouldn't do that anyway. I put a portion of mine up in a different post for some clarification, but not all of it... :)

I think we just need to see the first 2 characters, 7A (And below) should have the connector..
7B (and possibly above B) should not have the connector..
So far, no one has proved otherwise for my hypothesis..
Also, It's also the same situation in Taiwan now.. all the NEW Pearl White EEE PCs 4GB/512mb/Webcam starting with 7B does not have the connector..
It's not a regional issue, it's more like a m/b revision or batch issue..
"Asus remove it to prevent warranty damged cause by user for installing a PCI-E"
Quote from my TW source, not from TW Asus as there was no official announcement..
They don't need to anyway, since the mini-pcie connector was never advertised or stated officially anywhere on their sites..
