Default Laptop Building

I am a graphics person seeking infornmation and help with regards of building a new laptop or custimizing a laptop but i do not specialize in laptops only in desktops.

I am a graphics engineer needing alot of graphics memory, internal memory and the other stuff included in the computing area.
To be more specific i usually do touch up graphics and designing blueprints,plans,houses and other graphic or tech drawing on the computer.

So if you can help me with infornmation i can help u with any designing, drawing or graphic techniques.

thanx

Sounds like you need... a Macbook Pro! Seriously though, building a laptop probably won't be much cheaper than just buying one, and the warantee is worth having for something that difficult to diagnose and repair.

Agreed, you don't hear of many people building lappys, your best bet is to buy one premade

Try building a similar machine or AMD equivalent (MSI MS-1039) on www.avadirect.com, Pretty good prices and their warranty coverage is rated very highly on reseller ratings (9.xx last time I checked). It may cost you a bit more but it's worth it not having to assemble it yourself and having a well honored warranty imo.
