The Asus Eee Box EB1501 is a small form factor desktop computer, or nettop. And when I say small, I mean, if you pick one up, there’s a good chance your friends will confuse it with a Nintendo Wii. But Asus still manages to pack a DVD drive, NVDIA ION graphics, and a fairly sizable fan inside.
If you want to upgrade the RAM, wireless module, hard drive, or other components, you’ll want to know what the insides look like though. And that’s where Peter from Netbooked can help. He’s been testing an EB1501 for the last few days and he’s posted a video showing how to take the cover off the nettop.
The process looks pretty simple. You just remove a few screws and the faceplate covering the ports and then you can slide a portion of the case off. While it looks like it should be pretty easy to upgrade the RAM or hard drive, there’s not a heck of a lot of room for additional internal components. But that’s what USB ports are for, right?
