Right, most people know about the one on ebay at the moment, at just over $23,000 

 

http://cgi.ebay.com/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=300217494195

 

But Ben has just released his PART 1 guide to taking apart you beloved PS3 and converting it into a laptop. Not  entirely sure how many parts there will be, seeing as he is writing it up himself, but in this tread i will aim to keep you lot posted with updates.

 

So are you up for the challenge? Have some spare time? Like to dismantle expensive products? Then follow this: 

 

http://www.engadget.com/2008/04/24/how-to-make-a-ps3-laptop-of-your-very-own-part-1/

 

If anyone does, please post on how your getting on, problems, experiences.

 

Enjoy DJ

I believe, with the right tools and the time, (Not in the middle of my GCSE's) i would undertake this task, if i had the money as well... Would be an interesting project.
You have got to hand it to Ben though for having the guts and the perseverance to continue making it, from the planning to the final product

not only that, taking apart your ps3 like this will void your warranty, so go ahead if u don't want a warranty.
