parts are rare and not easy to find like firefox says it's expecive. if you are really good in computers it's not hard at all it's the same as building a regular computer just the parts are placed differently. i've made one and it wasn't very "complete". i think it should be a challenge but if ur interested try it once and if your comfterable try it out

In CPU magazine's new issue it has a nice article on buying a chassis and building your own laptop
