It depends on what components you choose and where you buy from. Depending on the options that you want it's not always that much cheaper to DIY. You could do something like this:
Asus Z96Jm 15.4 WSXGA+ Barebone Notebook Intel 945PM Chipset Supports Intel Core 2 Duo CPU DDR2 SATA ATI Radeon X1600-Best Computer Online Store Houston Buy Discount Prices Texas-Directron.com
Newegg.com - Patriot 2GB (2 x 1GB) 200-Pin DDR2 SO-DIMM DDR2 667 (PC2 5300) Dual Channel Kit Notebook Memory - Retail
Newegg.com - MSI MP54G5 (MS-6833B) IEEE 802.11b/g 32-bit Type IIIB Mini-PCI Wireless-G Notebook Card up to 54Mbps Data Rates 64/128-bit WEP, WPA, WPA2, TKIP, AES and 802.1x - Retail
Newegg.com - Western Digital Scorpio WD1200BEVS 120GB 5400 RPM 8MB Cache Serial ATA150 Notebook Hard Drive - OEM
Newegg.com - Intel Core 2 Duo T5500 Merom 1.66GHz 2M shared L2 Cache Socket M Processor - Retail
That's comes out to $1014+shipping by my calculation. You'd either supply or buy a copy of Windows (another $100). A similar Prebuilt model will run you $1300-1400 depending who you buy it from. I just configured the exact same notebook with an OS on ibuypower's (cheap, not a great builder, though) website for $1321+ship. So you can save a couple hundred bucks if you buy the right parts.
