Re: where to get barebone notebooks at
Are those barebones or just laptops with nothing in them? The only true barebones laptops I've seen have been the ECS desknote series. They run on standard desktop RAM, socketA processors, and have an easilly accessable 2.5" harddrive. The LCD and optical drive is also easy to swap, but not quite as simple as the others...
The main drawbacks are heat(beleive me, mine is increadibly hot) and lack of batteries. Performace isn't that bad though...
Desktop: Athlon 64 3700, 1024M RAM, GF 6200 TC 256M, 2x 80G, 2x DVD-RW
Laptop: Sempron 2800, 512M RAM, Unichrome, 60G, DVD-RW
Macintosh:G4 1.33GHz, 512M RAM, Radeon 9200 32M, 40G, DVD/CDRW
They get me from 0 to 1...
