Default Broadcom or no Broadcom - 01-06-2010, 01:59 AM

Not seeing the HD accelerator in the specs, the lack of this option is stopping my purchase.

I believe it's going to be available eventually.

Not available yet, but should allow for customization in the future.

Curious if it would be cheaper the buy the chip separately... Obviously there is a slot for it?

Not sure how you would go about the installation or how simple it would be since nobody has a 1012 yet to determine where the chip is located or how difficult it is to disassemble. To me, it looks like it would be a PITA to disassemble. But who knows.

I assume they will have access doors for RAM and HDD, but not necessarily for the area you would want to be accessing. These are all assumptions on my part though and have no facts to back them.

The Broadcom decoder is a MiniPCIe card. The specs say there are three MiniPCIe slots, though clearly some disassembly will be required to get at them.

Don't they normally post the tear down guides about this time or does it take a few days. I would search, but of course, lazy...

Based on the pictures I saw, that is correct. The PCIe slots are listed as not being user accessible..

If it's anything like the Dell Mini 9, they'll simply exclude the PCI-E slots from the motherboard if they don't have anything to put there. Just how non-WWAN Mini 9s don't have the empty PCI-E slot.


Please do not send me support requests via PM.
