Here’s How a Xbox One Was Gutted and Turned into a Laptop

About a month ago modder Dark Uncle created a rather sleek Xbox One laptop by gutting an Xbox One and assembling it into a self-built laptop case. Of course the modification required a lot of work and quite a few changes to extend ports and fit the hardware in the slimmer form factor.

While the laptop has already been sold, now you can see how it has been made in three videos that showcase the assembly process. (Xbox One)

Cool!

Now do PS4 and Wii U next.

I'm actually rather surprised that no one did a PS4 yet, especially considering that the components are very miniaturized. It should fit a laptop very well.

and also the fact that it requires less power supply ( to my knowledge) being as it uses an 8 cable and xbox uses some diffrennt thing that looks similar to an 8 cable lol

With all the millions MS spent on R&D and this guy gets the size down to about 1/3.

It's not about getting something wrong. It's about standards in journalism. If you want to be taken seriously, type titles correctly.

R & D at its best .. M$ spends millions on it some guy spends hours on it

He is a very smart guy, but I'm trying to figure out the main use of an XB1 laptop. Now if he has 2 XB1's the idea is awesome, one for the living room and one to go.
