HP Mini 1000 Upgrade Opportunities: Easy Access to RAM and SIM Slot

Getting to the hard drive on the system isn't as easy. There is no place to unscrew a panel to see the hard drive or other components. That isn't to say that some enterprising hardware modder like JKK Mobile won't be able to figure out a way to a way to get to the hard drive and sub in a super fast SSD, but so far we haven't been able to. Considering that HP has revealed its plans to make the Mini 1000 mobile broadband capable, we combed the system looking for a SIM card slot and found one burried underneath the battery. We were able to slip a AT&T 3G SIM into the slot. However, we assume the system lacks the internal antenna to support the capablitiy as of now.
