Question Build a laptop from ground up?

I was wondering if there are sites that I could get parts to build a laptop from the ground-up. Any help would be greatly appreciated.

No, unfortunely laptops are very one off, so mobos only fit certain cases.

You can get "barebones" setups, you add harddives, ram and cpu.

But not like a pc.
