Default Building a custom laptop?

Well its soon time for me to get a laptop. I would like to get a custom one. However I am not seeing any parts on newegg.com for a custom laptop. So what can I do?

While I do not Know were to buy such Parts I will say this.

To Build a labtop component by component is usually more expensive compared to buying one.

Building labtops, like we build desktops is not mainstream yet.. So there are not many places that offer component by component parts. And if they do, its more expensive and the selection is limited.

its really hard to find individual part for laptops....like mobos,ram,hdds,GPUs and the such.....and like STE said...it would be more expensive than buying a normal one. If you want a custom one check out www.widowpc.com i highly/personally reccomend them.

You can order the barebone notebooks from a website like gentechpc.com and order parts from newegg.
