A Deeper Look Inside

 

With the top layer off I was ready to put down my tools and get the camera snap shots. Check out these gorgeous pictures. The Eee PC is opened up and if you zoom in you can see the backside of the motherboard. The central white crevasse in the middle is the slot where the DDR2 RAM fits in.

 

 

If you look closely you can see the CMOS battery (Battery life: 3.5 hours, 4-cell Li-ion: 7.4V, 5200mAh) delicately stuck on with tape covering some chip tops. We shall start with exposing them. Here come the close ups.

 

First up we have the 4GB Hynix NAND flash memory (non-upgradeable), this commonly found in portable media players. This is the SSD hard drive and replaces a HDD that would ordinarily have moving parts like a spinning disk and read-write heads. This HDD replacement definitely takes up less space and should you ever drop the Eee PC, at least your data is safely stored in the static Solid State memory. It consists of 4x 1GB modules. Click the picture below to get a better look at all four modules on the PCB.

 

 

The graphics chip is integrated into the chipset and consists of the Intel GMA 900 with an additional VGA-out connecter.
