The First PS4 / XBOX ONE Combination Laptop!

 

Well guys, I did it… I managed to cram a Playstation 4 and a XBOX ONE into a 22″ Laptop form factor. This was a prototype unit I made for a specific customer and it came out beautifully! This is the same size of the XBOOK DUO, which is only a tad bit taller than the XBOOK ONE or PLAYBOOK 4. Has the same 22″ Vizio Screen and works like a charm. Check out the video above and the photos below. If you want to see more in depth of how I build these units, check out my other videos, specifically the XBOOK DUO HOW TO Video, which explains step by step my process. The only issue I had with this unit was the PS4 capacitive Power button will not work consistently. I have determined it has something to do with interference with the XBOX ONE being so close. Luckily it turns on perfectly fine using the PS4 controller, and still will turn on with the button if you have patience.

The PS4 sits on the left hand side of the unit, and the XBOX ONE is on the right side. The whole unit still only takes one power cord (must be plugged in) and only one unit can be powered on at the same time. This system took a lot of attempts and reconfiguring to make everything fit and still some things had to be compromised to make the system work, for example it was impossible to get the USB ports on the XBOX to be extended to the outside of the case. But the unit does offer Ethernet ports for both units (WiFi for both units also works) Along with HDMI Out. Switching between the units is as easy as flipping the Red switch on the back of the unit. You can not power both units at the same time, I do it this way so you dont overheat the system. There is a Smart HDMI switcher inside that automatically selects the active input, that way you do not need to worry about making sure your on the right input. Just power it on and Play!

This was a prototype unit I made for a customer and is not for sale. Additional units may be built in the future, but due to the high cost and complexity of the process, it will be substantially more than my normal XBOOKs or PLAYBOOKs. Email me for details if your a seriously interested customer.
