  1. Hey, on part 1 of the tutorial, you leave a link to digikey for a male header. When i click it it shows a expired set. What’s the part number for the male head required for your tutorial?

    Other than that, awesome work!!! I really cannot wait for part 3 to come out.

  2. Im attempting to make my original xbox into a laptop computer and i am running into problems on the av connection to the monitor. i am using an old apple laptop monitor i got for free to save money and i dont know how to connect it onto the xbox av output port. I was wondering if anyone had any kind of pin out that would point out witch contact points on the xbox av output i had to use.

  6. Is there a way to pay you for creating the XBOX 360 Laptop? It looks really cool and I would love to have one. Is it possible for you to create the laptop shell and I can insert the XBOX with a walkthrough if that is more feasible?

  7. About how much was the estimated cost of this project? I was planning on fixing a Red Ring of Death Xbox360 and using that for this, so I was wondering what It would cost for the other parts involved.

  8. I must be honest. After reading the entire article on that 360 laptop of yours, I sat here for like ten minuets staring at the photos and reeking of jealousy. Haha.

    I’m VERY impressed with your work man.
    I may embark on a journey like this someday,
    provided I can actually manage the patience…

  9. To answer Jericho, he says he charges a LOT (I think it was $5000, iirc?) and with all 360s you can save games on the Hard Drive as of the New Xbox Experience update. ๐Ÿ™‚

  10. thank you for the guide, but im just wating for part three. If it is at all finished could you email it to me? it would be very much appreciated.

  15. Wow still no 3rd part what’s going on with this. PS your first attempt was with water cooling why not use it in the newer versions of the xbox laptop?

  16. Wow, people keep asking in the comments where part 3 is and I found it in less than 2 minutes. Was I the only one who thought of clicking Ben’s name on http://www.engadget.com/2007/04/25/how-to-make-an-xbox-360-laptop-part-2/ to get to the list of articles he has made and click part 3 (or in the url just change the 2 to a 3) to get to this http://www.engadget.com/2007/05/22/how-to-make-an-xbox-360-laptop-part-3/ ? Anyways, Ben, you are amazing. I am only 13, though I have always had an interest in these kinds of things. I recently found out about you and was amazed, And that’s when I thought all you made was the Wii laptop, the first creation of yours I saw. You have inspired me and I hope I will be able to do something like this ๐Ÿ™‚

  17. There is a 3rd part, just Google Xbox laptop part 3. I am wondering how to make a case for this.
