The first video below shows the process of swapping out chips.
It’s a bit long, but you can see the first chip come out at around .
After buying an EEEPC in early 2008, I kept the same operating system that came with the computer for a while.

[luke] has put together a set of Eee PC upgrade instructions for those who suffer from solderphobia.
If you have the Eee PC 700 or 701, also known as the 4G surf, you can upgrade the storage, add bluetooth, and a touch screen without having to solder a thing.The three 'e's represent Asus' vision of it being "easy to learn, easy to work, easy to play".The Eee PC is also available from other vendors including RM, where it's known as the RM Asus mini Book.It shipped with a 900 MHz Intel Celeron processor underclocked to run at 633 MHz, 512MB of RAM, and 2GB to 4GB of flash storage.While it’s easy to upgrade the RAM or storage, the CPU is soldered into the motherboard — but that hasn’t stopped one guy from pulling it out and slapping in a faster chip.I looked at these issues: On my EEEPC 701, there is no way of replacing the 4 GB Solid State Drive (SSD) with a larger-capacity SSD without soldering.
