Dear Community,

I would like to spend up to £1000 in building my own customised laptop. What are my options?

Ideally I would like to know if this would be a simple process? I have looked over some alienware laptops but have no experience in using them but not sure on how well they perform.

Is it worth the hassle?

I mean like customise everything, is there a blank case I can start with and then have an ultimate pick of every part?

Would you elaborate on Alienware? Is it a bad product/too expensive? Consider I am living in the UK

I believe they do but you will need to email them about the finer details. They are a very reputable company they have been trading since something like 1999. It is worth emailing them to find out they are the cheapest around that I know of.

Hi guys, many thanks.

Looking at the price ranges, I have decided to opt out of buying a high-spec laptop as it would not match my needs for the price-tag.

I will deferr instread to buy a budget laptop with an i5 and upgrade with an SSD for a fraction of the price as I am confident with the current die-shrinking trend id be seeing better models in the enar future.
