Default can you build a laptop?

Can you build a laptop just like a normal desktop? Where do you get the parts? how do you tell if the parts are more compact so they fit into a laptop?

Yes you can. I buy the barebones from GentechPC.com and the parts from newegg.com or zipzoomfly.com

It's not that hard and laptops are always more expensive than equivalant desktops. Besides it's just cool to have a laptop you built yourself
