Hmmmmm there isn't a HUGE market for building laptops, what you will find is their is very few parts out there and the parts that you can but work out expensive.
I would leave it to the manafactures.

It comes down to your needs wether you are gaming or surfing. You can make a very fast gaming rig on a budget from AMD. Or you can go crazy and buy something extreme from Intel. It all comes to your needs, when you are considering Alienware - go buy the hardware yourself. then go to youtube, if you dont know how to put it all together - dont forget the instruction manuel.

You are the one with the money, sit down and think what you want to buy. Think about what you want from your PC. It doesnt have to be expensive.

Acers (mostly laptops, but not exclusively) are almost always cheap feeling and low spec for alot more money than they should be.

To get say, say a Samsung of similar spec, you'd get much better build quality for the same or less money.
