its called a laptop.

and yes, you can buy a laptop case with a mobo, but i think it would be cheaper to buy a premade laptop.

It's called a laptop unless that's a typo.

Start off through here: http://www.directron.com/laptopbarebone.html

This comes with the laptop case, monitor, mouse pad and keyboard, and everything you need. All you need is to add a wireless internal card, optical, CPU, ram, hdd, and os

Good luck and I would like to hear how this turns out
