Thought I'd crosspost
this here too, seeing as this is kinda where I started out in this direction...
So, I've decided to build an xbox laptop. The 360 is for lamers. I'm building and xbox laptop like a boss.
at this point, I've gotten most of the parts in, and what I haven't gotten is on order. So... Pictures...
I will build an xbox laptop. This will aim to have a total thickness of close to 1 inch and will include an unmodded (as far as the software side of things goes) xbox... disc drive, original 10gig drive, region locked and all. If it is modded, It will only be to allow it to play nice with my VGA monitor.
Screens I had to choose from
after some cutting(of another xbox case) I came to the conclusion that only the screen with the Dell bezel would work for this.
Playing with the disk drive... You didn't honestly think I was going to keep it tray loading... did you?
Pretty standard picture of splayed out xbox guts:
Showing that you... get this... don't need huge chunks of ugly and mostly faulty plastic to make the disk drive work (<3 Ashen)
Case roughed out:
Random bit of it kinda thrown almost nearly together into a roughed out idea:
This is how the internals will be laid out... except I'm flipping the mobo over and swapping the side the drives are on... so that the fans blow out the bottom of the unit...
Right now it's kinda waiting on me to finish cleaning house... and the black ABS I ordered to get here... but hopefully I'll get to finish things up pretty soon.
I wish the damn plastic supplier would send me my crap already. Hasn't even shipped yet. I haven't been billed... but it hasn't shipped yet either. :/
