Re: Building a Laptop: Worth it?
almost all laptop chassis's are custom designed for a particular laptop, there aren't any 'general' cases like there are for desktops. Mobile components are so scarce, and there is such a lot more fluctuations in compatibility you may aswell not bother. For instance, although the socket is the same, an Athlon board probably won't take a phenom or sempron. Just buy a decent lappy and upgrade the parts you aren't 100% with.
