Ben Heck’s PS3 Laptop

[Ben]‘s been at it again. This time he’s whipped up a PS3 laptop. He built this one just for engadget… and there will be how-to’s on it, oh yes, there will. For now, you can wet your appetite for console modding with the picture gallery. It’s pretty big, but It’s actually thinner than the original console.

    and it only weighs in at a feathery 16 lbs!

  2. lorddef says:

    Well it looks nice and as usual shows he’s got skills.

    But once again WHY WOULD YOU WANT TO DO THIS?

    I hate Ben Heck

  3. mem says:

    Looks excellent as always, Ben Heck does amazing work, I for one would love a ps3 laptop. I need a linux laptop for work anyhow and being able to play the odd ps3 game or bluray movie @ lunch would be nice.

  4. dirk says:

    i posit that ben heck is some sort of alien. or cyborg. his work is too clean and snazzy to be merely human.

  5. Jon Richars says:

    he worked on it for a year and a half? wow, this guy’s got way too much patience.

  6. tjhow says:

    “wow, this guy’s got way too much patience.”

    either that or he has wayy to much time.

  7. Thingus says:

    Once again, Ben proves that you can never go over the top. This mod is slick, sexy and just freakin’ awesome. Way to go, Ben, that makes all three current-gen consoles. I can’t wait to see what you do with the nigh-announced next-gen.

    I just thought I should try and warn all of you against visiting AVG detected five instances of the virus “JS/PSyme” on the main page (accessed 2008-04-12 @ 0113 EST).

    judging by the photo you sent, you were infected before visiting your antivirus must have misinterpreted. a quick google search says it came in through a malicious java site, and is nondestructive.

    The page load was temporarily suspended each time AVG detected the virus and asked me what to do about it. Therefore, I’m pretty sure it came from something on the main page of

    Ben heck is the man.

    I propose we make a statue of him and then modify the statue to make it more portable, and then make a statue of _that_.

    The resulting statue will be put on display at the Smithsonian museum, or at a really cool park somewhere or something.

    He must be keeping up with his dexedrine or adderall therapy to keep with a project for that long.. lol :)

    if there was a way to get one of his inventions i would jump through hoops to get one. the ps3 laptop has to be the coolest thing i have ever seen. i need one.

  14. Michael says:

    Definitely an awesome laptop. I would definitely buy one of these if they were available on the market. Keep up the good work.

  15. Beli Laptop says:

    Sometimes the patience and the hardwork bears a magnificient thing. This is just amazing.

  16. LinkJink says:

    that’s really cool
    i was looking at the pix gallery and was kinda sad that it didn’t have a HDMI out tho.. for kinda portable gaming on a big screen !!!!

  17. Rikusen says:

    Well, its 2011 and no full tutorials on how to make one. unless you have a slim your gunna have to try to make your own with the ps3 phat…
