Tnkgrl has never met a tiny computer that she didn’t want to rip apart and upgrade. So it should come as no surprise that within a few days of picking up an Acer Aspire One she decided to add an internal Bluetooth module. And better yet, she recorded a video showing the entire process and posted a bunch of pictures to Flickr.
The video’s rather lengthy, so I’m going to bury it after the jump. If you’ve got a half hour to spare and/or want step by step instructions for disassembling an Aspire One, check it out. It looks like the trickiest part is popping out the keyboard so you can access all the goodies hiding underneath it.
Up next? Tnkgrl plans to swap out the computer’s solid state disk for a hard drive.
This video (Parts 1 and 2) was PERFECT for helping me to upgrade my AA0 from the original 8 GB to a 60 GB hard drive. Carefully following tnkgrl’s instructions, and noting some comments about how much force could be needed to get the connector ribbon in to the new Samsung hard drive helped me succeed in upgrading on the first try without ANY problem.
nice video… thank’s Tnkgrl for all the help….
Thanks for posting!
