Disassembled TC1100

I’ve been using this wonderful tablet computer, the HP TC1100 for a
couple of years (thanks @dessman!) but it finally kicked the proverbial
bucket last week. I thought I might find the problem if I opened it up
and, as you can see from these photos, things kind of got out of hand.
Here you see the tablet maximally disassembled on my dining room table.
Note my pint of ScotchIrish IPA — always a good idea when exposing the innards of
delicate electronics.

    Tim did this, too once, under the same sorts of circumstances. And I sense that you got just as excited. I think it’s a y chromosome thing.

    You wouldn’t get excited about this? Come on — that computer is in little pieces there! And, even better, I put it back together and it booted up again! But only once. Then it was no less dead than it had been before the autopsy.

    I might be a little curious but my excitement could not match yours. Or Tim’s. Or Sacha’s. Although I will admit to being impressed that you re-assembled and re-booted. That’s pretty cool.

    Hi,Is it possible to remove the processor and install a new one. I have the 800 MHz version. Since you have already disassembled the tablet, you are qualified to answer the questions :)Regards,Yahya

    Hi Yahya, <br/>&nbsp;<br/>No, I don’t think it’s possible to upgrade the processor — it’s soldered to the motherboard. <br/>&nbsp;<br/>But I’ve seen the 1.2Ghz model for sale recently for about $400. It’s a great alternative to a netbook, IMO. <br/>&nbsp;<br/>Cheers, <br/>Andy
