Do you know what "barebones" means? I think you don't.

It's basically the chassis with the motherboard and necessary stuff in it and you buy the parts you need for it. It's way cheaper than buying a pre-built notebook.

Oh dont get short with me you simpleton. You know good and well I know what a barebone is, And if you knew any better you'd know that buying a barebone is extra work you dont need to do.

You cant build a notebook from scratch, The reason being is because we dont have a set standard for the parts

You know how we have atx moterboards, 3.5" hds, 5" disk drives, etc?

Well all the motherboards and power supplies and video/sound and batteries are al different in every laptop because the companies will not decide on a design that you can switch parts in
