Eee PC USB Flash And Bluetooth Hack

Right now, 8GB is the most storage you can expect to find inside an Asus Eee PC, and in order to get one larger than 4GB, you have to have it imported. Good luck with that, since its hard enough getting a 4GB one these days.

Besides storage, another great feature the Eee is lacking is Bluetooth. Well, a crafty user of the EeeUser forums decided to hack together a pair of internal USB ports onto the miniPCIe port and install a 16GB Corsair Flash Voyager and a USB Bluetooth adapter all comfortably nested away inside the case of the Eee.

The best part about this hack is, it uses USB, so, you can change what's connected, or even upgrade with considerable ease. Now it does appear Johnx had to remove the outer shells of both USB devices, but that's a small price to pay for an Eee that now has Bluetooth and a usable 20 gigabytes of storage instead of the 4 it came with.

Personally, Bluetooth isn't that important of a feature for me, so I'd probably throw 2 flash drives in there. In case you are wondering, there is a complete parts list, some instructions, and links to the threads this guy used for info for his mod.
