Question Mini 10 upgrades - 02-09-2010, 04:27 PM

I am looking into buying a Mini 1012 for travel. I have an Inspiron 15 (1564) but dont want to lug it around airports. What I was thinking was a very basic 1012 and then upgrade it later. I know I can upgrade the memory later but can I add the GPS or TV easily ? What about Bluetooth or 802.11N (and I don't mean dongles) ?

I think it can be done..not easily and IF you can find the parts, the bluetooth is pretty easy to find, dont know about the TV Tuner or GPS, first of all I think you can only have one or the other not to mention the antennas that are needed for either....I dont think that they are in there..I would just order it with everything and forget about it.its less trouble and aggravation in the long run.

PS. I dont think all those options are even available yet
