Thanks, ASUS, for doing the right thing.
ASUS released a press release yesterday clarifying their position on the yellow “Warranty void if removed” sticker on the bottom of the Eee PC devices that covers the RAM slot:
ASUS wishes to assure its customers that merely breaking or removing this kind of seal will not void the ASUS Limited Warranty.
This is great news for those looking to upgrade RAM or to see if their Eee PC comes with a Mini-PCIe connector. Now, you do not have to worry about voiding your warranty because of that sticker.
However, on the Mini-PCIe issue, it is interesting how ASUS words one line in the release:
ASUS Computer International (â€œASUSâ€) recently received feedback from one of its valued customers with questions concerning the purpose of a seal stating, â€œWarranty Void If Removedâ€ over the access door to the single SODIMM slot on some models of the ASUS Eee PC
Interestingly enough, the slot(s) below the access door is only described as a “single SODIMM slot.” There is no mention of a Mini-PCIe slot.
 This is from the ASUS North America website. The press release also appears on the Canada website.
