What a difference a chip makes

Wi-FI & Bluetooth (on top), Wi-FI only (below)

The more I open these Ultra-Mobile PC I realise just how genius manufacturers are that build the devices. To fit everything into the small form factors and still keep them cool, running fast and full of features it often takes some clever design. Recently I cracked open a device to replace the Wi-Fi module with a combination Wi-Fi/Bluetooth module. It worked perfectly and integrated into the motherboard so well I decided to order a whole bunch “just in case!”
