    Rev Wii Laptop mod ditches the disc, gets ultra portable



    The famed Ben Heckendorn concocted the first Wii Laptop of note way back in 2007, but ever since, the modding community at large has been toiling away on ways to improve it. ShockSlayer, a member over at Mod Retro, has accomplished just that, with his predictably titled Wii Laptop relying on a 7-inch LCD, an integrated sensor bar, a couple of polycases and inbuilt speakers. There's hardly anything here that couldn't be found at your local Radio Shack, save for the SunDriver -- that particular product has enabled him to ditch the DVD drive and install a SATA HDD within. From there, he burned his Wii game discs and loaded 'em all inside, making the whole thing extra mobile. Oh, and did we mention that it's powered by rechargeable batteries? Because it is. Marvel at the completed device in the video after the break.

    Long time no see an update about DIY portable consoles.
    Good job making it, but I wonder how many will take this since it bases the game loading on a "pirate" issue.

    Still this is awesome!

    Nice mod, seems a bit bulky though. I wonder what the actual weight is.
