Eee PC 4G hacked – man adds 16GB "hard drive" and Bluetooth

The full details of what the nasty man did to the innocent little laptop can be found over at the Eee PC Forum, where he’s built up quite a fan base thanks to his pro-level soldering activities.

It’s a risky game, though. The Eee PC’s a nightmare to get hold of right now. If you have a particular desire to get rid of one you’d be best off putting it on eBay rather than taking it apart and covering the motherboard in solder – Eee PCs are going for upwards of £250 over there right now, a decent profit on the £220 machine.
