I found the Dell Mini 10v 1GB very slow in just the simplist things. Things were so slow I had to run my browser Gmail on simple HTML, the WordPress flash uploader I changed to browser uploader, and setting up the external video as its own sceen vs a copy of the laptop sceen was just to slow.
So I picked up a 2GB SODIMM and pulled out the mobo of the laptop and installed the memory. I had to remove the keyboard, harddrive, the touchpad and palm rest, the keyboard support frame, and then the motherboard.
Here is what it looks like all apart — and yes it worked when I put it all back together and there were no leftover pieces.
