I was wondering what kind of work woudl be involved adding a 4 port USB hub to my Acer Aspire One D150. I would like to put bluetooth, gps, and a dedicated 2gb stick for readyboost. I realize this will take some soldering, but just wondering if anyone has done this and what the process was like

it has no expansion slots so you can't, unless you have an external hub.

The circuit boards on computer systems are highly integrated - they're assembled and soldered using automated equipment. It's pretty close to impossible to modify them. Even if you have access to the very specialized equipment used to deal with surface-mounted hardware, the best you could probably hope to do is to replace a faulty component.
