As popular as the Asus Eee PC has been, many people have been complaining about the “warranty void if removed” sticker on the laptop’s access panel, saying users would render the warranty invalid over something as simple as upgrading the machine’s rather anemic RAM memory.

Fortunately for Eee PC owners across the globe, Asus has released a statement explaining that merely breaking or removing this seal for upgrading the Eee PC will not void the ASUS Limited Warranty.

The company is also taking steps to make sure that the seals in question are no longer used in its products. Instead, future Eee PCs will simply advise users that they should only upgrade the system if they know what they're doing and that Asus “will not be responsible for the damage caused by improper hardware change.”
