  1. I don’t understand why you left out the HDD because of power restrictions. If the unit has 4 or more USB ports couldn’t you have used one of those to power a small HDD? It seems like there is more than enough power to go around…

  2. hi i am interested in buying 1 of ur 360 slim laptops i live in london so i will this be a problem for region reason? and does it have a port 2 plug in headphones such as turtle beachs? many thanks

  3. Taking out the HDD was not a good idea, there are some games that people play like Halo: Reach that restrict you from using specific gametypes to play the game. And even saving gameplay videos.

  4. Ben, I’d be interested, except for the hard drive issue. That is a beautiful xbox laptop, the best youve made so far possibly, but that hard disk power issue could have been worked around fairly easily. 2000$ is a lot for me, and If I spend that much on an xbox I want it to have a hard drive, or a place to put my own…(start making your own power bricks, get a higher wattage)

  5. I like it a lot and Daddy got cash but…..
    like others have posted i need audio out jack
    HDD and metal plating around the side completely
    the layered plastic doesn’t look good and isn’t flush with the disk drive flap.

  6. Why is everyone having such a problem with the lack of an HDD? Sure Halo 4 requires an 8GB install but just grab a 16GB USB. You can get those small ones that look like a wireless mouse receiver and you’ll never notice it. I’ve read that with the recent update you can start using 32GB sticks (I havent heard if you can use two for a total of 64 or not).

  7. It’s interesting. All these complaints. Me and my friend are starting to make these ourseleves, they are going to be 250GB HDD with audio jack and any other complaints people might (also it’s going to be $1500).

  8. would it be possible to get just the plastic metal case around it? and if so how much would that be?

  9. Hey Ben, I have been looking at ways to make my own xbox laptop and all of the ones I see have to plugged in to power on, I was wondering if you could make one with a battery inside. Would it be possible to do that?
