Explain to me the phrase "like Newegg". They do not supply parts for notebooks. Yes, they have drives RAM and CPUs, but they do not sell motherboards and mobile graphic cards.

The most you can do is get a barebone system.

They won't. You know why? Laptop motherboards and cases aren't like desktop's. They don't have a form factor. Each manufacturer has a different board, of a different size. Different versions are a different size as well.

There are a few websites that will let you "customize" a laptop to your liking, but it will be with selected parts that will be compatable with that one laptop. (Dell, Sager, Ibuypower, etc...) But like MoM said... It isn't a desktop, so you can't shop around and piece-meal one together.
