Generally after you tear something down you have to put it back together again, but after Ben Heck disassembled his Xbox One S he thought it was too easy to simply return it back to its original case.

He therefore decided to turn it into a portable laptop, complete with screen, for full-powered game play on the move (so long as you have a power cord nearby.)

In the step by step video below he also shows how you can do it, and with an Xbox One S now hitting only around $200 it seems like a great project for the handy and well equipped.
