Fan Turns Xbox One S into a Laptop

Ed Zarick, the console modder responsible for the monstrous Xbox One/PS4 hybrid laptop, has taken the new slimline Xbox One S and turned it into a portable gaming device. The XBOOK One S features a 19-inch Samsung screen, and is available in 500GB, 1TB, and 2TB models.

Zarick says:

“I wanted this new system to have a simplistic and professional feel about it. I did my best to get it as slim as possible using thinner materials where I could, but adding thicker/stronger material in important areas. This is a technique found in all laptops and I wanted to adapt that. The XBOOK is made almost entirely out of strong acrylic, although I won’t say its rugged but it is a solid system.”

“On the front of the XBOOK you will see the two speakers, these were designed to point right towards you and can get pretty loud! above the left speaker is a small black joystick, this is the TV control. This allows you to turn on and off the LCD, adjust the volume along with menu controls. Included is a remote for the TV for fine tuning. Next the that is the XBOX Bluray drive. This system is capable of 4K video (through HDMI out to a compatible  TV) and does look good. Next up is the disk eject, power and controller sync for the XBOX inside. All you have to do is plug in power and push the power button and your off to gaming! This system is not battery operated due to the large power consumption of the components. It would end up making this system heavy and not giving you much play time if I added batteries inside.”

“Onto the rear of the system we can see air vents on the left and then all of the ports. You have access to all of them. You have HDMI IN – Two USBs – IR Blaster – Optical Audio Out – Ethernet – Power in – HDMI Out (4k). The two normal plugs you would see that are covered up on the left would be the XBOX HDMI Out and Power. Well those are both used inside the system to give power and video to the LCD. But because we all want HDMI Out, a 4K HDMI splitter is installed inside and then routed to the far read HDMI port. So no worries everything is there!”
