Believe it but dont plan on playing it.As part of commisioned project, Ben Heckendorn of Verona, Wisconsin, spent three months and $1200 custom altering an XBOX 360 to turn into a full fledged playable laptop unit.

Heckendorn, the author of the book Hacking Video Game Consoles (2005), put his experience reconfiguring Atari 2600s, SNESs, and PSX to the test with this new product.Creating the XBOX 360 laptop required some major work, including crafting aluminium casing, building an intricate water cooling system, installing keyboard and speakers and more high tech bedazzlery.
The final unit weighs about 14 pounds and is 16.75" wide and 10.75" long by 2.8" thick.Better yet it plays games like normal 360 with the addded benefit of a built in keyboard and HD widescreen display.Hell, it's a portable, self contained 360-just plug it in and play!
