Lightbulb Laptop build discussion

So, I have always wondered about building a laptop, but my interest spiked when I saw mobile processors for sale on newegg.

When I saw that, I spent a lot of time trying to figure out if building laptops was going to be a new thing.

I have been looking out for this for about three months now, and I still can't figure out if it is legit or even possible to build a decent laptop.

Easy parts to find are obviously hard drives, memory, and optical drives; however, the hard parts seem to be finding a good chassis and motherboard, or even a graphics card.

Any input on this would be great, and if you have built your own laptop, I would love to hear about it

(I am wanting to build a new laptop because I know how much cheaper it is to build a PC rather than to buy one pre-built." =P

I've built with barebones (add the CPU, memory, wireless, optical, hd...) There isn't much selection.
