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. You can check them out below alongside the original video showing the results.

Gotta tip our collective hat to this kind of crafty creativity, even if the portability might be a little limited, considering that the bulky external power source and Kinect have to be carried on their own.

    If the Xbone 180 can be slim down to this size and still stay cool then why did they go for the Beta Box design?

      So they can sell everyone a slim in 12 months? Duh?

        I wouldn’t slim down my console that much.

      I suspect problems with overheating and/or it would cost more.
