    Two college geeks have enterprisingly built a fully modded Xbox 360 laptop using a 17-inch Gateway monitor, a keyboard, an Xbox Live camera and Wireless Network Adapter, similar to Ben Heckendorn's. The design appears stylish and appealing with a neatly laid out white crossbar (X) running across the keyboard layout and a green logo etched at the intersection of the crossbar.


    The following video provides a detailed account of how they designed the modded X-box 360 laptop brick by brick.

    Those interested with the design and planning to own one can decide to perhaps contribute to the creators' higher education by purchasing this mod on ebay with a current starting bid of $1950, roughly Rs.91,000.

    The modders have revealed that the creation of this mod has cost them over $2,000 and a labour cost of over 650 hours. They claim to have tested this mod for the last three months without any overheating issues. It is built using a Xbox Elite Jasper system and ships with 12 months of Gold Live membership, a wireless 360 controller, a Xbox Live headset and a custom power supply.

    Just leave consoles as they are, this is just a waste of time and money, and because time=money, you lose even more money! [​IMG]

    Neither, I'd rather get a PS3, flat screen TV, and bluetooth headset, some games, and an extra controller for $1000 [​IMG]

    But going on topic, I remember there was some guy on ebay who would sell these for the last gen consoles. I was actually thinking about buying the original XBox laptop...

    I love seeing people being creative with console mods. Would I spend $3000 on one? Not a chance though.

    Neither. I will make a Gaming PC, buy an Xbox 360, a Plasma TV with 2 HDMI ports and pretty much it. Would save more money, but after all, it's just for opinions.

    Nice mod, but... Expensive x].

    Still looks nice, though.
