Default Building A Laptop

Hey I'm looking to build a laptop i know how to build PCs but I never tried building a laptop before. Any tips or a guide on where all the parts go? I just want to make sure...i noticed newegg doesnt have internal hard drives or cd drives on the laptop im building i want mostly everything internal. Anyone know where i can find a case like that if it exists? Thanks.

YOU are going to build it... with your own hands? If so... I'd rethink that decission.

I have no idea how you'd go about building one.

He means from components, I don't think it is possible, as you woun't be able to get the parts.

Laptops are too propriety to be able to build... I'm sture you could probably find the individual parts on ebay but it would probably end up costing more to build than to buy a new one.
