first of if you gonna hack it and install the missing mini pci e slots please keep in mind its not for the faint of heart theres a few things to look at before attempting this guys
1. to find mini pci e connectors you can source them from ebay but DO NOT buy the 9.2mm mini pci e connector because they will not fit try and get the 5.2mm
saying it wont fit is because theres 2 missing connectors the 9.2mm mini pci the trackpad will not let it close
2. the mini pci e connectors are freakishly small and the pins are crazy
you will need a high powered magnifying glass suggest the googles that the jewelers where you can find them on ebay or any local hobby shop
3. you will need to know how to solder dont even attempt it if you dont know what your doing imagine trying to solder something with the diameter of a toothpick
4. finally by default since its the base model the mini pci e slots are actually turned off by default so maybe installing a jumper or messing with the bios
i mean if anyone attempts please post pictures i will be sourcing and buying parts and will attempt the install myself have done it before on my acer netbook
will post pictures of my progress also
