Ben Heck’s portable Xbox 360 laptop for gaming freaks

Ben heck is one hell of a modder, and the testimony is his work for so many years and yes, his own TV show that goes by the name The Ben Heck Show. Right from the PC case mods to things like Raspberry Pi cases; ben has got it all. For the season finale (Episode 52) of his TV show, Ben created this portable Xbox 360 laptop for avid gamers who can’t get enough of gaming and want to have their Xbox 360 with them at all times. Weighing 7.5 pounds and build around gig Xbox 360 model, this 15.6” widescreen VGA laptop is put together using 3D printed custom hinges connected to the main screen unit. The original hard disk has been removed from the Xbox console to make for more space to house the components and eliminate any extra heat that might be produced while intense gaming.

The laptop is powered by the standard Xbox 360 Slim PSU Brick and build-in speakers make sure that you hear every minute detail while gaming, making the whole experience exhilarating. Other than that portable Xbox 360 laptop has HDMI, S/PDIF, USB front and USB ports for connectivity to external sources. All-in-all a thumping mod yet again from the modding king himself, and at the price of $2000 (shipping charges extra) this one is a must have for all the gamers out there. And yes, one thing I forgot to mention, this was given away to one of the fans just like Ben always does with each of his latest projects.
