More about : barebone laptop notebook motherboard runswindows95 a b D Laptop a b V Motherboard May 3, 2007 12:07:08 PM The biggest problem with building a laptop is you really don't save money. I know from a previous search a 15'4" screen alone is $400. michiganteddybear May 3, 2007 12:42:05 PM also need to add, that laptop motherboards are unique to each design case, so you wont likely be able to find one that fits the basically empty clamshell your looking for.

MichiganTeddyBear: The motherboard which I have in mind is considerably smaller than 'normal', so I guess that there should be enough space for it runswindows95 a b D Laptop a b V Motherboard May 5, 2007 2:54:32 AM Overall, it's not worth building a laptop. For $889, you can get this. Again, you don't save money by building a laptop considering the CPU in that Toshiba is $207. Can't find your answer ? Ask !
