All true. Personally I think that building a laptop has the potential to be such a big pain in the *** and more trouble than it's worth that you should just consider buying a prebuilt or custom one from HP or Compaq. Very good prices, decent enough quality, and unless you're trying to get an Alienware type of gaming laptop, good options as well.
