"roll model"? I'm sorry, is that something like a roll of toilet paper?

That thing is way to thick and probably too heavy. Even if he had weight reduction in mind when he made it, it seems you could achieve the same with a laptop. I would only imagine how powerful a laptop could be if one were that thick however lol. More powerful than an Xbox anyway........

[citation][nom]mwilliam12[/nom]Yes, but could you build your own laptop?[/citation]


Sites offer custom built laptops, so yes you can build your own laptop.

dont see why he didnt just get a laptop keyboard with touchpad on top of its base, with the cooling fan at the side and/or back. That would have been truly portable.

I guess by your logic...All you can do is pick parts to build any computer. So I guess computers are not built either. You choose a barebones that has the board features and screen you want and add to it. Just like picking the board you want and adding to it.

I appreciate the time, effort and ability this takes, but I'm not sure how viable it really is. It just doesn't look small enough to be truly portable. I think I would rather just carry a 360 and a monitor separately if for some reason I needed it to be portable.

[citation][nom]KawiNinjaZX[/nom]Yea, except PC gaming sucks. Oh snap[/citation]

How many times did you replace your xbox360? and how much does it cost you to play on xbox live?

I've been a fan of Mr. Heck's work for a while. It's always interesting to get new perspectives on design choices for custom projects.

You could buy two nice laptops, build at least 2 really nice gaming rigs, or build one Ludicrous-speed desktop setup for the price of this. I wouldn't buy it unless I was filthy rich.

I would love to build something like this myself though- the main challenge would be finding an elegant yet functional way to handle the power brick (pun fully intended), wireless controller gear, and other non-standard hardware.

that seems like a suit case!!! i think its better to get your xbox and a slim lcd with tape.... i think it will replicate the same but just a bit more abstract
