    Making a laptop? I had no idea you were such an expert in electronics. Can you describe the procedure you used to design and test the CPU you built? ;)

    I guess you mean you are getting the specs for a laptop, or are buying one. I that case, I really recommend a good laptop rucksag. Mine is made by DICOTA and is of very high quality I feel.

    Take a look at their website :

    Have a look at the rucksag I have: Backpackers&ds=567&office=8&words=2

    Very useful if you find that it starts to rain....

    well to be honest I had no idea if it was possible its actually my friend wants to make one, he just presumed you could slap the components together like a pc, he just asked me to sourse him a case and give him a hand if neccisary.... Thanks for the responce anyway though!

    You mean a case to put a laptop in?

    As far as I have ever heard, you can't do that. You have to buy a laptop from a manufacturer. You can upgrade it, but its only certain type of upgrades such as RAM, HDD, PCMCIA devices and extra USB devices.

    I think this is a bit of a non-starter. Assuming you find a case - doubtful. The next post would be does anyone know where I can get a laptop motherboard? ;)
