If you're using the Linux version then get rid of firefox 2 and replace it with a better web browser.

Hardware-wise there's the battery and wifi card, the SSD is soldered to the motherboard on the 4G so you can't upgrade that.

I put 2Gb of Ram in mine, remember you cant use the standard Linux Distro with that thou, you have to update it or it will only use a max of 1Gb, I use XP now.
There is a cheap battery on dealextreme for it :)
Also i use opera for browsing, it is a lot nicer for the small screen and a lot more adjustable

EndlassWaves, why add a wifi card it already has wireless??? you can upgrade the SSD using a SD card but its not worth the hassle (for me anyway)

wow dude 701s are weak! i just put xp on a mates one.

use an nlited version of XP and installed it only takes less than 600mb!

also you can get a SD card for more space.

It's got wireless G, you might like to replace the card with one that does dual-band N instead.

That's not really an upgrade is it?

That may be the bracket for a second mini-PCI card, some of the 701s reportedly had them (mine doesn't). I don't know if it'll be connected to anything, but if it is then you could use that for a second SSD or something else - maybe even an internal bluetooth or HSDPA module if there's room for an antenna.

The wireless N makes sence, The SD upgrade is an upgrade as it makes the SD card internal and unmovable once in (unless you take your case apart again), So you can have a SD thats static and still use the SD card reader.

What you say about the Bluetooth is a good idea.

Also my 701 has the 2nd compartment but not really looked into it yet, might have a look later :)
