The Xbox 360 Laptop!

Filed under: Video Games — icruise @ 2:40 pm

I’ve talked about people making portables out of normal console video game systems before, but this is the ultimate. Ben Heckendorn has put together a LOT of these kinds of machines, and while they were cool and all, they did seem to be lacking in the “real world usability” department. I mean, who really needs a portable NES when you can emulate every NES cartridge on a PSP or GBA? But his Xbox 360 laptop is just incredible. He’s taken the Xbox 360 and put it in a custom case with integrated keyboard and HDTV screen, as well as liquid cooling system, wireless internet, video inputs, etc. It doesn’t run off of batteries — even if it did, battery life would be atrocious and the batteries would make it even bigger and heavier (it’s 14 pounds as it is). I don’t even want to think how much it cost to make this. (Ben’s site seems to be having trouble coping with all the traffic, so you might have to try back later to see all the pictures, but they’re worth it.)
