The Asus Eee PC 1201N is a notebook with a 12.1 inch display, a dual core processor and NVIDIA ION graphics. On the base of the laptop there’s an access panel that you can open by removing a couple of screws to upgrade the RAM. But if you want to perform a more serious upgrade, like say, replacing the hard drive, you’re going to need to open the Eee PC 1201N up a little more.
YouTube member DevilDragon360 has posted a video showing just how to do that. You can check out the complete video after the break. But in a nutshells, you need to remove most of the screws on the bottom of the laptop, then take off the keyboard and remove the panel separating it from the mainboard in order to access the hard drive. It’s not the kind of upgrade that’s for the weak of heart, but if you’re looking to boost performance by upgrading from the stock 5400rpm hard drive to a 7200rpm model or an SSD, this is pretty much the way to do it.
