Asus Eee PC mod nets 20 GB of internal flash storage

Asuseeepc16gbflashAt this rate, the Asus Eee PC is going to win a 2008 InkBlot award for the most hacked UMPC. The latest modification adds two internal USB ports, one of which currently houses 16 GB worth of guts from a Corsair Voyager flash drive. For the math-challenged, that brings the internal flash storage capacity up to 20 GB and still keeps the other stock parts in perfect working order! Since I’m solder-shy, I’m going to hold off on the heavy duty hacks like this and wait for an flash module on a PCI-e card.All of the gory pics and instructions for this upgrade are readily available on the EeeUser forums, which is really becoming a wonderful and heavily trafficked resource. The hacks, tips and tricks are there for the taking and clearly folks are taking notice: the number of topics and posts are well into the tens of thousands for a li’l Linux laptop that’s only about six weeks old!(via Engadget; thanks Steve!)
