Someone has build their own computer before; but has anyone built their own laptop? I never did this task before, and I have no idea how I am gonna do it. Do you have any useful information I can used, so I can follow the step by step instruction to learn from it?

I'm totally puzzled as to why you would want to build your own laptop when you can have one built to your own specification by some specialist supplier. But you can buy a laptop off the shelf in practically any configuration that you want, so why build it yourself? Is it just for the satisfaction of doing it yourself?

Hello clorissa!!! Well I don't really understand what you are talking about. What does this mean? Do you mean building them electronically, or you mean selecting the parts for your laptop or installing the desired operating system for your laptop. I hope if it is about installing software, or the desired operating system like Windows, linux, then many people can do it. You have to format and install, that's it. If you mean the other thing, then its difficult... Anyway happy mylotting...

the same way you build you desktop computer. Customize what you need in CPU, Hard drive, case, power supply, RAM, etc..... and yes, pick the parts you like according their functionality specification.

Are you talking about assembing your computer? I think you are. Now, I am no expert but assembling laptop isn't that easy and you should not try it. I mean if there are professionals avaialble around you then you should take their help in treating your laptop. Don't try anything silly so that your money can be saved. Happy lottin.g
