Make your own PS3 laptop (part 1)

Let the how-to’s begin: [Ben Heck] put up the first installment of his how-to series on making your own PS3 laptop. Since this one is all about the tear down, you might dig the PS3 design even if you’re not interested in making your own portable.


  1. Mike says:

    I’m afraid I would screw something up and render my precious $600 ps3 useless.

  2. Grant Kohler says:

    Oh dear, the ps3 by itself is already big black and scarry….

  3. Anonymous says:

    Anyone else getting sick of the Ben Heck stuff? I’m really tired of seeing all his Engadget posts copied here.

  4. @ anonymous:
    personally I find it all amazing.

  5. ex-parrot says:

    “Meanwhile, inside a PS3…”

    Oh dear… that phrase amuses me more than it probably should.

    I know laptop this and laptop that gets old, but just because you can’t do it don’t be a hater.

    b/c of ben heckendorm and this site i have built my own 3’x4’x5″ cnc machine and vacume former. Pretty soon I’ll be golden.

    Eh, I think they tend to be interesting hacks, even if they don’t require intimate technical knowledge in every case. The occasional “mechanical hack” can cross over here just fine for me.

    I mean, HaD only gets ~5 posts on a good day, and I don’t always have time to wade through Engadget’s ~50 posts to find interesting ones like this.

    Seriously, it’s like every. single. cell. phone. on. the. planet. gets 10 Engadget posts. Ugh.

  8. Karp says:

    Can’t wait for the next part, My PS3 can’t live apart that long without me. But I will follow and built one!

    Smile-Z-Have Fun,
