Video Daily: The Xbox 360 laptop

Video Daily: The Xbox 360 laptop User CollinE of the BenHeck forums has created an Xbox 360 laptop, and is currently selling it on eBay where it has a high bid of $1000 USD, so far.
The specs of the console are:

* 

17" widescreen LCD with 1280 x 768 resolution
* 20GB hard drive
* Ethernet port and cable
* Three USB ports
* Official 64MB memory card
* Xbox 360 wireless controller
* Xbox 360 headset
* Power supply
* Dimensions - 16.75" x 11" x 3.5"


While the laptop may be gigantic, it still beats the alternative, dragging your 360 console and TV around wherever you go (if you aren't going to a place with a TV), so take the good with the bad.

Same idea mate. im jus saying that instead of havin useless bundles and new tweaks and call it the next gen of PS3 (slim for instance) put in the market something like this thats actually usefull to a target aydience and isnt just a gimmick to attract mainstream customers

The Slim was made to cut down hardware price so the PS3 could be cheaper.

When did Sony claim that it was a next gen PS3? it was just a remake, just like the PS1/PS2 Slim.
It wasn't to attract mainstream customers.

Besides, Microsoft would never do this. If they did try to do this, they'd sell the screen separate to make them more money.

oh my god wow thats amazing i gotta have that, well not really, i was expecting a guy that had integrated x-box hardware into a laptop, an actual laptop capable of playing 360 games as well as do all the other things a laptop can do, all this clown has done is stick a flatscreen tv onto an xbox and tied it all together in an ugly box with hinges. you even have to have a seperate power cord for the monitor and the xbox bwah ha ha ha. im pretty sure that would mean my old fat ps2 was a ps2 laptop because i bought the attachable fold up/down monitor with speakers.

for me bringing out a"remake" and sayin its slim etc etc and making alot of hype about it as if its supposedly better cuz its slimmer is to tweak it to appeal to the mainstream (as in mainstream gamers who dont own a PS3 ) audience. though now that i think about it i half expected the thing to be a laptop integrated with xbox hardware..but thats a nice feat to accomplish in its own right

Again, Sony made a slimline version to cut the price of hardware.
It's about time that Sony has started to advertise. Let's be honest, the Slim looks horrible compared to the original PS3.
And it's perfect for Sony to advertise the PS3 more now because of the price cut.
Even I'd rather advertise for a 250 machine than a 300 one.

LOL... nope.

Those fans are mega-loud, too. Sounds like it has the laptop version of Harley pipes.

They might provide more air than conventional 360, but with the sandwiched equipment, it probably still gets hotter faster. We all know what that leads to...

This isn't the first time its been done, there has been better 360 laptops out there; the one from benhack was much nicer and had video/component out. Also it matched the 360's color scheme which is more appealing to the eye than the red black one here.

1129.12.2009 22:32

Now the Red Ring will match the Design of the machine.

Just a bad idea in general but a nice profit I say.

I would never want to carry anything around like this.

Anyone seen a PS3 laptop with a keyboard yet? All the ones I have seen just don't look like laptops...the PS3 supports keyboards and trackpads...a PS3 laptop should have them.
