He means the laptop would make him sterile, iamjoe56. Personally, I wouldn't want burns all over my legs either.

Incredibly mod job though, I've been seeing a lot of articles on the topic of console modding lately and I'm amazed at what you can do.

iamjoe56:

um...because it's a *laptop* and you have to put it on your lap? With the heat from that thing in close proximity to...yeah...it'd make you sterile, as in you're not gonna have kids; He didn't mean it as in bacteria. Not to mention it could probably burn you quite a lot unless Benjamin J. Heckendorn compensated with good enough cooling. Laptops, as far as I know and have heard, can get quite hot with all the components crammed so close to each other, so cooling is a problem with laptops. The PS3 is meant to be stationary and, as such, isn't restrained in it's size. Given that, they don't have to worry about giving the system large fans and vents. With a laptop, you can't fit all of that in without making it too big (although that laptop is a monster). Furthermore, the PS3 has performance hardware and, besides the immense powerdraw, generates a *lot* of heat. With the small fans they choose to use you won't be able to move enough air. You're not gonna have the air you *can* move vented up towards you from where the keyboard is, besides the fact that it would be blocked by the screen when closed. You don't want to direct the air down onto the user's legs (lap and, hence, their crotch) either. That leaves the back side and the sides to the left and right of the user. As we all (should) know, those dimensions don't leave much space to vent heat from, especially if that space is further taken up from expansion slots, optical drives, media drives, etc.

I think its cool but why so big? I think kids will find that hard to balance it on their laps for a long period of time while playing except been placed on a table. Good job man!

Wow, that looks pretty bad ass. It actually looks like sony made that, the way the casing is molded, and not some 'home made' design.

Seye, if you want to know why so big, let me trun your view toward the ps3. the thing is a monster, which means it has a lot of componenets, some of them being big. Since the ps3 laptop has those components in it, it would naturally be big. In a way, It is genius that he could get it a small as it is. Try not to think of it as a laptop- think of it as a smaller, portablt version of a ps3.
