Well-known console modifier Ed Zarick announced the latest addition to his modded consoles, the Xbox One S.

He is recognized for creating modded consoles like the Xbook One (A Xbox One turned into a laptop) and the PlayBox (A PlayStation 4 and a Xbox One in a single case). After getting the slim version of the Xbox One S earlier this month, Zarick started to work on it, and the results are a look-a-like laptop like its predecessor, the Xbook One.

He downgraded the original display of 22-inch to a smaller 19-inch Samsung TV, setting the resolution at 720p, but making it more portable. It can be connected to a larger monitor or a TV to enjoy the 4K presentation of the Xbox One S.

There are two speakers on the front of the system, one at each side and it has a joystick at the top left to turn on and off the LCD monitor. It also comes with a TV remote to have full control of the settings.

The Xbook One S is not entirely portable, to work it needs to be plugged into a power supply, instead of working with rechargeable batteries. Zarick develops Xbox One S on demand only, so it means that he will work on them as orders come in.

The interested can purchase the 500 GB version system for $1,495 plus shipping, the 1 TB version for $1,545 or ship him their own Xbox One S to be modified for $1,200.

The PlayBox (PlayStation 4 + Xbox One)

Zarick presented last year The PlayBox after a customer asked him for a case holding inside a Xbox One and a PlayStation 4. It took him a month to make it but managed to do it.

He pointed out that he was able to make it work using a 22-inch laptop. The result was a portable console as the same size as his previous Xbook Duo and a little taller than the Xbook One.

The PS4 is to the left of the laptop, while the Xbox One sits on the right. The laptop requires just one power cable to work, but only one console can be powered at a time. Things like the capacitive power button of the PS4 and the USB ports on the Xbox One were compromised for the console to work, but it still works perfectly.

Zarick is giving away the Xbook One S used in his video, for those interested here is the tweet with the info:
