Meet The Xbook One
It’s an Xbox One laptop, and it costs $1500.
Now, before you all get up in arms about this, know that this isn’t an actual official Microsoft made or marketed product. It’s something that an engineer and an enthusiast built up himself- it’s called the Xbook One, and it’s an Xbox One laptop. It’s pretty massive and hefty, and comes in a lot of configurations:
- Xbook One 500GB with Kinect: $1495
- Xbook One (you provide the Xbox One): $1095
- To include HDMI Out: $50
- Flat Rate Shipping of $75 to 48 US States (Zarick suggests getting in touch if you’re after international shipping).
“I have spent a lot of hours working on this trying to get ease of producing them easier,”Ed Zarick, the guy who made these laptops, explained.
“The quicker I can build these, the cheaper I can sell them. It’s that simple. But with the cost of the new Xboxs compared to the 360s, and the higher cost of the parts used in production of this unit, it’s going to be more than my last Xbook.
“A 500 Xbook One with Kinect is going to cost $1495 plus shipping. This may seem expensive, but they are expensive to produce.”
Well, I mean… yeah, but this really has no utility. On the plus side, it’s still cheaper than an Alienware PC, I imagine so there is that.
