And does replacing it void the warranty?

Also, I thought you could fit 3 drives in the JX and I just opened it and theres only 2 slots, must have confused it with another laptop?

Hi,
just answered this on another post but while i am here,
i have just got a broadcom 4352 delivered to replace my atheros.
reply from question to Asus:

"Thank you for contacting ASUS. Unfortunately ASUS can not provide any hardware upgrades due to ASUS policy. Please be advised that doing so, you could invalidate your warranty. We are sorry for the inconveniece caused.

If you have any further questions, please do not hesitate to contact us.

so, I am going for a "YES it does", final answer, to your question :)

bad news as my previous laptop, Acer, was a doddle to replace.
and it had 2 pcie slots (i actually had 2 wifi cards in there)

yep, sure does.

oh, for the 3rd hard disk, you can replace the internal dvd drive with a caddy.
i also have one of these on order but its 'lost' in transit right now :(
and i dont think that will break your warranty as its only 1 screw under the removable bottom plate.

I removed the optical drive a few weeks ago and using a caddy from the link below. Works great no lags.
