Default Building a Laptop

Can anyone think of a reason why there isn't a market for Laptop components? Most of my friends when I ask, give me all sorts of BS about price and MoBo flexibility, and say that no one would want to build a laptop. Again all of that is BS, I personally would be the first in line to buy parts to build a laptop. As for components and size, there could be a form - factor system like in desktop building, (Full - ATX, Mid - ATX, Micro - ATX, BTX, etc...) This way manufacturers can get by the irregularities of laptop designs. as far as I'm concerned there is not really any reason why manufacturers aren't making Laptop components. Anyone disagree?

you can buy barebone laptops. I think that is pretty good. most people dont want to have to build in that confined of a space. BUt that is just my personal opinion.

I'd say form factor, size and interface restrictions are the main reasons we don't see a market for laptop parts. Each brand has its own conventions and standards.

I do agree that this shouldn't be like this. I'd be the second in line to buy parts to build a laptop... after dest
