jorsoft03 is your man for this.

You can buy barebones laptops and then order parts from other places to complete it.

What you'll be able to find are barebones notebooks. That'd be the chassi, screen, mobo, keyboard/mouse, video card, etc. They won't include hd, ram, or cpu, those you will add yourself. To find models that suit your need, browse what Aus and MSI have to offer, make a note of the model numberds, and type them into pricegrabber, ebay, etc. to find where to find them and what prices you can expect. Sometimes it's actually cheaper to have a company like Custom Gaming PC, Desktop Computers, Workstations, Notebooks, Servers & Parts build the whole thing for you rather than piece meal it.

Yeah they'll all have onboard. I don't think there's an enormous difference in quality amongst them, especially the custom ones. You can always go for a pc card sound card (linked below) but you'll need to hook up a set of speakers or headphones to make any use of them. Creative makes some nice ones, x-fi, audigy, etc.

Sound Blaster X-Fi Xtreme Audio Notebook - Your music and movies. Way better.
