Seeing as how I am about to get a 360, I will have no more need for my regular xbox.

Would it be possible to actually take the parts out and put them in my laptop?

I'm talking as additional parts, so I could have both graphics cards running, even two processors? o-o

Yet, switching out would be okay too, anything right now is better than this piece of sh**.

Before I go on any further, is it even POSSIBLE?

No, there isn't anything in your xbox that you will be able to salvage for your laptop. Generally, the only upgradeable things in a laptop are RAM and the harddrive. Occasionally, the processor can be upgraded but that varies from laptop to laptop.

The parts in a xbox are off the shelf PC parts but the only thing that conceivably would fit in your laptop would be the CPU but only if its the correct socket type and its P3s in xboxs so it would have to be an old laptop but its doubtful you would gain anything but a headache and a large paperweight from the attempt.

Correct me if im wrong, but ive heard the hardrive from the orginal xboxes can be "unlocked" and then converted to a standard hardrive. However I dont know how this is done, or if a 4gig hardrive is that valuable.

Do you have any need for a 4gig HD? No, I don't think it would be worth the time or effort required to unlock the HD.
