One ‘Heck’ of a PS3 Slim Laptop

October 2, 2009 Written by Kishen Patel


Ben Heck, the hardware modifying extraordinaire, originally conceived the one-and-only ‘PS3 Laptop‘ back in 2008. However, since then, the original PlayStation 3 slimmed its size and as such the PS3 Laptop needed one “Heck” of a redesign to keep up with the program.


According to the  modification aficionado, the design held the possibility of being shelled in a smaller form-factor but was not because the attached 17″ screen was a must for the laptop.

Here are the specs of the redesigned PS3 Laptop from Ben Heck’s personal blog:

  • PS3 Slim Hardware, with cool-running 45nm architecture. Very VERY quiet.
  • 17″ widescreen LCD with HDMI-DVI digital connection.
  • Built-in power supplies / compartment for the AC cord.
  • Push button volume control with stereo speakers.
  • Sleek white monochromatic styling with pin stripes.
