What is the best site to custom build a laptop?

Posted 03 April 2015 - 07:46 AM

Hi guys and gals,

I'm looking to build a custom made laptop, well not actually build it myself I just want the freedom to select all the components and a chassis.

What sites would you recommend ?

Thanks,
James

Logic boards are designed & the cases are specifically molded as per the design. The best you can do for a custom build is to select memory or cpu upgrades. The only other option is to buy a broken laptop & fix it. There is very, very, very little customization that you can do with regards to laptops.

Do a search for custom built laptops.

As no2 said, a lot is chassis dependent. I went on Dell's website and picked my minimum requirements and that gave me the chassis, from there I upgraded what was most important and fit my budget.

Worst help ever... how does one randomly show up (3rd post) on this topic about building a custom laptop & just say "Google it". The question has already been answered. But thanks for playing along.

Hey There,

Sorry for bring this post back from the dead a little however I do recommend Novatech mainly because of how helpful there customer service has been in the past for myself.

They are normally quite quick to deliver as well, plus from what i have read on the laptops they don't pre-load it full of crap that i would normally have to spend time taking off.

Thanks for replying regarding Novatech.

Im glad you recommend them actually as they have really good value laptops, looking to build something with 32GB of ram and a 4th gen i7.

Thanks for the reply.

all the best,
J
