I was wondering if this can be done within a reasonable price limit. I'm thinking of doing this, but I have doubts on whether I'll be able to find all the necessary parts and a case and screen and whatnot. Do any of you guys have experience with building laptops and if so how much would I be looking at spending? I want one that is around 1GHZ with 256 or 512MB of memory, with fairly good graphics, a nice fat hard drive, and a DVD drive preferably. I just hate to buy Dell or Micron or anything like that knowing that they put parts in there that aren't up to par with what I want in my system. Thanks for any suggestions!!!
