How would you make a case? Do you intend to make the screen too?

This is about as close as you are going to get to building your own laptop, starating with a barebones chassis w/ screen and motherboard then adding your own memory, processor, hard drive, etc:

Get you some sheets of ABS plastic, a heat gun, drill, dremel, ect ect, buy the MB, screen, ect and get busy, layout a template for the MB on the plastic drill your holes, layout the lines where you will need to bend the plastic, use the heatgun along the lines and slowly bend to shape. This of course is just a basic outline of what your wanting to do.

Basically, look for small form factor parts and get REALLY into case modding.

buy the parts first because you will need to know how much room you are going to need, bolt patterns and how you will layout each part before you can get an idea how you will need to template the case.
