    Hi. I just got my 751h and I am loving it despite the rather slow processor speed. I have come form an eeePC 1000h which has bluetooth and Wi-Fi N so I am feeling as though I want to upgrade things a bit!

    I popped 2gb Ram in and that's helped a bit and will put the 320GB HD form my eee in at the weekend. However I looked at the Wi-Fi card and it is tiny! I tried to pop my Wi-Fi/Bluetooth dual card in and although the slot accepts it there's a stupid peg half way up it now so it wont lay flat and engage properly! There's a space next to the slot that I guess can hold another mini-pcie card but there doesn't look like the connector is there!

    Any help would be greatly appreciated. :?

    Are you saying (by default) that it hasn't frozen up yet???
    I had (now my granddaughters)an original 9" machine that I replaced the wireless card. It was an intel
    card with "N". Ran slick. I have a permanent case of CRS. Google for it.

    The problem is the stupid little 'post' thats in the way of putting the full length card in place - and the fact the second mini pci-e slot has not been fitted (just the edge connections on the motherboard), so I cant use that.
