Hi I was getting board during the holidays so I decided I wound make a second attempt at building an Xbox laptop it will have:
A 15inch monitor (can anyone please give a guide to do this) or a 7 inch lcd
A 2.5 inch hard drive probably sata as they are cheaper
Ill probably leave the DVD drive out (still trying to figer out a way to do this)
If I use the 15inch monitor Ill put the power supply in the case and if I use the 7inch I will make it external
Any suggestions would be appreciated

well... obviously you would need to find an old laptop that will fot the mobo. then theres the problem of power. i sugest making the PSU external but then plugging that into the mobo will be a big problem. also connecting to the local laptop LCD will be a problem since i doubt that the xbox AV out is compatible with it.
all i can say is GOOD LUCK. i cant see how it could be done... but you're welcome to prove me wrong

Ok a couple of questions first how will I run it without the DVD drive and second is it possible to make my own power supply with an assortment of 780# compositors or something like that.

tsop flashing or modchip with let you run without a dvd drive if you tell the bios not to do a drive check
as for the psu http://www.mini-box.com/s.nl/it.A/id.417/....amp;category=13
that will do all you need to use to power the box then will be a laptop cable

Is it possible to use one of these http://cgi.ebay.com.au/ws/eBayISAPI.dll?Vi...e=STRK:MEWAX:IT
with a 16gig card in it .also i have decided to put the DVD drive in it but strip it down so it loads from the top.

Yeah it looks possible, the only thing that might cause problems is the format. What would be interesting is if you had a collection of cards and you rewired the insert mechanism to the side, so you could switch things around if you wanted to. Stripping the drive down to a comparable height may be difficult but it's entirely possible.
