Hello all
I have a chance to buy an xbox 360 laptop but am unsure of how much i should pay/ what it is worth
here is what i will get

xbox 360 modded into a laptop (see pics)
cooled by 6 fans

10 games retail
Gears of War
Gears of War 2
Halo 3 ODST
Bioshock 2
Resident Evil 5
Fallout 3
Halo
Prey

There's no built in wifi?

I dunno really what to offer the guy. If you know him, and know it'll be quality then offer him maybe 600-700. But if you don't know the guy then I wouldn't offer more then 550 or so

As "good" as it may look i can see at least the power brick has some shotty wiring. I wouldnt bite unless you personally know the guy (like a friend)

Why bother when you could get a real laptop, have a warranty and run the PC version of these games which means better graphics, performance and modding of said games. Even if you don't get a new laptop, you can probably get a used ASUS G series Core 2 or refurb for pretty cheap now that the G73s are out.

TBH I think the thing looks like the awful love child of an original xbox and a pizza hut box.... but I guess it could appeal to some.

It reminds me of when ricers ruin a perfectly good honda by painting the vents and trim pieces red/green/white and making the interior look like a light-bright vomit fest...
but that's a whole different topic.

Definatly no??? lol...this is probably the worst Xbox 360 mod I ever seen before. I would keep my money and buy a PS3 slim or a Xbox 360 slim ( if they ever come out which I doubt ). Or even upgrade your pc and put it a bigger screen then, play the windows version or a identical game ( game are always allthe same -_- that's lame ) of the game that you have on the Xbox.
