Ben Heck mods an Xbox 360 Slim laptop

Posted by Trent Nouveau

W00t! Talented serial modder Ben Heck has built a sweet, tricked-out Xbox 360 Slim "laptop."  


The system - which uses an internal power supply - is approximately 1.5″ inches narrower left/right and 1″ narrower front to back than earlier mods based on the old Xbox 360.

The portable Slim is also significantly quieter, as it leverages a stock Xbox 360 Valhalla fan and does not require supplemental cooling hardware.

Additional specs include:  

  • Internal WiFi.
  • 
Touch sensitive power and eject buttons.
  • Pushbutton control audio amplification.
  • Gateway 1775W 17″ widescreen LCD display @ 1280×720.
  • Fan grate design copied from PS3 Laptop design.
  • PVC plastic routed case.
  • Air holes.
  • Removable hard drive panel.
