Okay, this is old news but I am building one of these regardless.

Yes, I know, it is made of win. That is why I want one.

Okay so I need to know what I will need to do it.

Xbox360 (obviously)
Laptop Case (with HD screen)
Internal HDD (I know how to mod this to work already)
PC Power supply (Again, I can mod this to work as well)

What else am I going to need that doesn't come with the Xbox360? I don't care about the camera at all but if I can find a cheap used Vision cam, I will probably put that in.

I can't believe these don't melt within an hour.

It can't run that hot. Throw in a decent fan and you've got some portable win.

It would be outside. No way I am putting that in there. I was hoping I could maybe get a battery pack though and mod it to be powered like a standard laptop. I would have to see how much that would take though.

Okay, a few minutes into my epic project I have hit a snag. I cannot find a place to buy a laptop case/shell. I need one with a screen (17.1in HD because I am picky) and a keyboard. I can mod the rest easily.

Nobody knows of any Laptop case sites? Or maybe a tutorial site for making my own?

I've check google already. First place I went... Also tried for barebone laptops but those are way over budget and come with stuff I don't need.
