"The PS3 laptop visiting the world's most amazing website*!
*Disclaimer: Most amazing website based in Wisconsin, that involves electronics, the color blue and claims to run off beef stew and Diet Pepsi."
"A closer view of the built-in keyboard. Not wanting to 'mix things up', it's the same model USB keyboard as in the last few Xbox 360 laptops I've built."
"A top-down view with the lid open. Notice the shiny chrome -- this can be used to signal airplanes if you are ever stuck on an island Tom Hanks-style. (Unless the island has electricity in which case you can just sit around playing COD4 and not caring about rescue)."
"A close-up of the Blu-ray drive (FTW) slot, and the power/eject/lid open buttons. These retain the capacitance touch feature of the original unit, and actually work a little better since there is more surface area of the metal buttons to touch. (You'll be playing ports of Xbox 360 games even faster now.)"
"A view of the unit from another angle. 3 of the 4 USB ports are replicated to the front, the 4th is used for the built-in keyboard."
"A view from the back of the unit with the lid open. The entire unit is quite shiny (and thus tricky to photograph). It also collects fingerprints and smudges as well as a factory-direct PS3/PSP, so it is very authentic!"
"The PS3 laptop next to the original case. It's actually about 1/2-inch thinner, which is accomplished by having the PSU and Blu-ray drive beside the motherboard instead of on top of it."
"Close-up of the volume control and headphone jack. This is probably only about the 3rd project I've ever done in which I've bothered to include a jack. I decided to label them 'CANS' just to be different."
"Top side view of the unit closed. Notice all the slick fake chrome!"
"Bird's eye view of the closed unit. It retains the original power cord/plug as the original PS3 (less stuff to buy)."
"A preview of how the unit was put together. Stay tuned to Engadget for the entire 'making-of' series!"
"PS3 sits in the living room, ready for some action."
