Modding The Acer Aspire One With Bluetooth

[tnkgrl], a regular around here, is at it again. This time she has modded an Acer Aspire One subnotebook to have internal Bluetooth. She’s released part 1 of a multi part tutorial on beefing up the Aspire One. In this part, she covers disassembly, adding more RAM, and adding the Bluetooth hardware. She suggests that you look at her Bluetooth install on an Asus 701 to find more information as the process is nearly identical.

Part 2 of the tutorial is going to cover upgrading the SSD to a 1.8″ PATA hard drive and putting it back together.

  1. Nothing new to _you_ genius, but maybe not some other folks out there.
    Take a pill and let us have our little fun, m’kay?

    I think this is awesome stuff, and I might just try my own internal Bluetooth dongle install as a result of it.

    Thanks, hackaday!

  2. Have you ever in your life attended a wedding and reception and have felt sorry for the groom because he picked the most significant boneheaded buddy to be the best man. It happened to me, we travelled a very elegant wedding and the Best Man’s speech was so awful that it was unbelievable that this dude was the groom’s best friend. After they located the best man, he got up to the microphone and provided this speech: “This couple, Bill and Monica are great and I hope their life is filled with fulfillment and all those things that make a marriage great.” This is what you get when you don’t plan in advance a speech. When I got married two years later I didn’t want my best man to be the topic of conversation for years into the future so I sent him this kit on how to write a best man speech. It relieved the anxiety and his speech was superb, hilarious and poignant.
