You don't really build laptops. You just buy them..

Something like this:

Newegg.com - SONY VAIO FW Series VGN-FW485J/B NoteBook Intel Core 2 Duo P7350(2.00GHz) 16.4" 6GB Memory DDR2 800 500GB HDD 5400rpm BD Combo ATI Mobility Radeon HD 4650 - Laptops / Notebooks

I think it has what you wanted, that is just an example, I am sure there are cheaper ones.

Well, there is a way you can build them, but it's not the preferred way for a non-experienced person.

Much of a laptop is integrated, thats why its not nearly as easy.

Well, yes, but there is still a way to do it, tho it is hard to do.

Your best bet would be to customize a Dell or several others out there where you can pick what you want, or just find one on Neowin that meets your specifications.
