the first things i got for it were:
16gb sd card
2gb ddr2 667
usb hsdpa modem
now i had a pretty decent laptop but it was still basicly standard and i didnt like all the bits sticking out of it so i had to start modding.
my main source of info was http://beta.ivancove...ternal_Upgrades it is by far the best and most usable set of mods i have seen so far so i used it as a template for my mods.
this is my layout for my mods it consists of
2x usb sd card readers
2x 8gb usb flash drives (for operating systems)
mini-pci-e 4965 AGN WIFI
usb 54g wifi
touch screen (still waiting for delivery)
e220 hsdpa modem
all the pcb's have had the connections solered off and chopped down with a dremel (apart from hsdpa as i still need it just now) to use the minimum amout of space i can. the usb hubs are getting soldered to the mini pci-e usb ports and the power will controlled by 2 switches in the modem port like http://www.metacompo...00.CIMG1810.JPG
one for both hubs and one just for the hsdpa modem because it draws the most amount of power idle everything else draws minimal power when disable from windows. if iadd more stuff i will probibly put another in the pci-e bay.
the antennas for the wifi will atach to the 2 stock antennas and another antenna i bought from ebay mounted in the screen.
your probibly wondering why would i want a second wifi adapter? well when i seen this mod http://wiki.porterte...900-ext-antenna for hooking up a 1watt signal booster and hi gain antenna
the bluetooth will also be getting an antenna upgrade with the second wifi antenna i got from ebay the antenna on the bluetooth pcb has been cut off and the wifi antenna will be soldered to it and routed to the screen.
the hsdpa will be in the pci-e bay use an externa data card antenna from ebay and mounted like here http://forum.eeeuser....php?pid=448709
fm transmitter antenna will be mounted in the screen and buttons will be accessable in the pci-e bay
i thought i would post just now before i actualy start cutting and soldering to see if anyone has any more sugestions before the laptop gets taken apart.
and finaly since this is just my second post here thank you i dont know what i would so without this forum as a guide :D
