You can build a Thinkpad T60 on a budget of just around $300~
With an OS those sell on ebay for $400+
It's a decent turn around in some cases, but finding all the parts and building it piece by piece could take some time, as there isn't a Newegg equivalent for laptop parts.

Doesn't really count for everything though, as they don't sell system boards and various case pieces, keyboards? touchpads? wireless antennae? chassis? cables? screws?

I mean, I see the major parts, but I don't see that stuff.

As 90% of a lAptop is onboard, and each board only fits certain cases, you're sorta stuck.
