The First Xbox One Laptop Mod Has Already Been Made And Sold

Neowin writes: "We have seen folks create an Xbox 360 laptop mod in the past, but now one person has charged ahead and made a 22 inch laptop from the hardware pieces of Microsoft's Xbox One console. It comes from the hands and tools of experienced modder James “DarkUncle” Terry."

that is impressive, wonder how much he sold it for

Considering his 360 conversions are like 1300, I'd assume this one would be 1600-2000.

It's cool but really silly because, by the sound of it and what we know about how the one was designed, it was made big so it wouldn't get hot. I feel it might melt in that case. Still cool though

SMH....your comment would have been so much more different had it been a PS4 laptop mod.

Or have you thought about no i wouldn't (as I am criticising the designers design choice not the console).

The thing will cook in such a small case. Why bring up the PS4. I suspect the PS4 would cook as well (because the profile is so thin) but the PS4 is fairly small anyway. The Xbox was designed to be large for maximum air flow to keep it cool. Putting the thing in a small case will not keep it cool (which is why the fans sounds like it is going to take off in this video)

I have a high end PC in a case that's about the size of an xbox one, no heat issues at all. It's all about placement of vents, materials used, and the components themselves more so than it is the space.
