The Asus Eee PC T91 netbook I reviewed a few weeks ago was a loaner, so I didn’t want to go too far out of my way to open up the case and trying rearranging the hardware. But jkkmobile spent his own hard earned money on one, and a day or two after it arrived, he opened the case and started poking around on the insides to see what kind of hacks are possible. Here’s what he discovered:

  • It looks like there should be room inside to add a 3G module
  • There’s not a lot of room for a GPS receiver
  • If you want to upgrade the SSD you’re going to need to either wait for a third party upgrade kit to come along or spend a little time carving out some of the plastic, because there are no third party SSDs designed to fit in this model. It uses a 50mm PCIe SATA SSD, while companies like RunCore currently have 70mm versions. He connected a few of those SSDs, but while they booted, the computer had trouble with standby and hibernation. And of course, he couldn’t close the computer case with the ill-fitting SSDs inside.

The SSD hack sounds like the most exciting one to watch, since the Eee PC T91 ships with a relatively slow 16GB SSD.

You can check out jkkmobile’s first look video after the break. If you look closely, you’ll also notice he’s slapped a carbon fiber cover on the netbook’s lid.

  1. Thanks for the comments. I enjoy the straight forward “likes and dislikes” that you share with your audience. You provide a valuable perspective to potential buyers and you don’t act like an employee of any given manufacturer as some reviewers act. Thanks for the continued good work.

    1. I believe he’s Finnish. He once made reference to his Finnish accent in a thread at JKKmobile.com.
