The Playstation 3 Laptop Mod

Modder extraordinaire Ben Heck, whose previous projects have included laptop versions of the Xbox 360 and Nintendo Wii has been rather busy (on and off) for the past year and a half working on a PS3 portable to complete the trio of console mods. The project is now complete, with Sony's original 60GB console being shoehorned into a 'portable' format complete with 17" LCD screen, integrated keyboard, stereo speakers and USB ports. The unit was built by request for Engadget, who will be auctioning off the device for charity "real soon". It is a considerable achievement to get the rather chunky console into such a small enclosure, so we have nothing but respect (and maybe a little awe) for Ben's skills. Expect some 'making of' articles to follow in the near future.
