So i have seen a few threads about diy laptops, none with a built one, and most of them said not possible no standard set of parts. I was thinking of upgrading my netbook with a ssd and a ram upgrade at 1 am when I came up with the idea of a laptop from scratch build using desktop parts which turned into a tablet after looking for key boards and trying to design a hinge and screen that worked.
I want something similar without the batteries, how long do you think it will run for on batteries?
You would need to include a charger? Would you end up with it plugged in most of the time and just enough battery power to go from one socket to another. Which I think is what happens with most people using a laptop when the battery capacity declines.
Perhaps forget about the batteries? Just go with a small internal psu?
good luck and keep us posted
